border crossings: a community engagement lab | Offsite Workshops


Come share your stories and experiences with crossing borders. Use words and story prompts to explore what is a border? What does a "border crossing" mean? Why do we need borders? When does a border become a border? Participants will imagine, and express their differing and intersecting border crossing stories. No previous experience required.
