The purpose of the program is to introduce students to the history and contemporary issues of working people and immigrants through the visual and performing arts.  Registered students will have the opportunity to participate in hands-on activities by which they are encouraged to develop their understanding of an immigrant worker’s home, lifestyle and workplace as a means of comparison to the same issues today.
