The Open Society Documentary Photography Project and fellows from the current exhibition, Moving Walls 25: Another Way Home, will be hosting a dialogue about collaboration and co-authorship in community-driven artistic pursuits. The participating artists are driven by themes of transnationalism and migration and explore these themes within and in partnership with their communities. The conversation will serve as a space for audience participants to ask questions about successful storytelling techniques and how to determine the best storytelling methodologies in socially-engaged artwork. The panel discussion is a part of a day-long event celebrating migrant families in New York that will include artistic workshops, cultural food and conversations.

We encourage you to visit Moving Walls 25: Another Way Home during the event. Another Way Home brings together eight projects led by 13 visionary artists, journalists, and creative technologists who are exploring the topic of migration through documentary practice. These artists reclaim and redefine narratives of refugee and immigrant experiences by focusing on themes of identity, community, and resilience.

This event will take place in Spanish.
