Oyeme (Listen to Me): Stories of Refugee Children, March 23 in Globe Hall

Category: MC Events

Published: Mar 9 2017 12:00AM

Join us for Oyeme (Listen to Me) on Thursday, March 23 from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in Globe Hall on the Germantown Campus.

Oyeme!is a collaborative project that responds to the surge of refugee children fleeing violence from Central America who have arrived in Montgomery County. Many of the children have experienced horrific circumstances in their country of origin as well as in the migration here.

The performance mixes emotion, angst and humor to present the difficult situation families face when deciding to take the perilous journey to the United States. The performance mixes English and Spanish.

There will be a post-performance discussion about the topic of immigration organized by discussion groups in English and Spanish. Afterwards, we will have a reception for everyone to continue the conversation.

Project partners include Imagination Stage, The Hispanic Heritage Foundation (HHF), Montgomery County Department of Recreation, Councilmember Nancy Navarro, and the Department of Health and Human Service's Street Outreach Network (SON).
