In 2013, Green Card Voices produced its first touring photo exhibit “Immigrants Telling Their Life Stories” as part of its mission to share immigrant stories with as many people possible. The exhibit featuring 20 Twin Cities’ immigrants has traveled to over 35 locations (see below) throughout Minnesota and has since evolved to meet high demand.
It includes portraits of immigrants, their 200-word bio, a quote and a QR code (viewers can scan them with iphone/ipad and watch the first-person video story). The videos are a novel way to engage with the audience and has been received with positive reviews.
In the past couple of years Green Card Voices produced additional exhibits in collaboration with our partners in Central Minnesota (St. Cloud and Willmar), Fargo (North Dakota), Atlanta (Georgia), Milwaukee and Madison (Wisconsin) and St. Paul (Minnesota).
