Opening Reception: Saturday, December 3rd, 6-9 PM
Exhibition Runs: December 3 - December 30, 2022

To Your Raised Head-Stories of Immigration by CarryOn Homes (COH) is a collection of stories and portraits of refugees and immigrants from the SWANA region who now call Minnesota their home. To Your Raised Head-Stories of Immigration is a collaboration between COH, the Iraqi American Reconciliation Project (IARP), and Winona Afghan Support Network (WASN). The exhibition's title came from the poem My Homeland by Rabea AlShimmery. COH commissioned My Homeland through IARP's network; AlShimmery is an immigrant poet from Iraq.​
