St. Paul – Objects of War: A Storytelling Circle
November 5, 2022 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm CDTFree
Join the Minnesota Humanities Center on Saturday, November 5 at 10:30 a.m. for a storytelling circle centered around “Objects of War.” Whether dog tags of a family member lost in service, a good luck charm kept by a soldier, or a family heirloom that traveled across the world by a refugee, objects can hold deep meaning for those who have been impacted by war.
Participants are invited to bring their own object to share that helps them tell the story of their own connection to war, whether direct or indirect. Moderated by a Veteran and a refugee, the conversation will examine why we hold on to certain material objects, and how they can help us better understand the human experience of war. Noted photographer Xavier Tavera will be on hand to photograph interested participants with their objects. Co-sponsored by the Minnesota Historical Society and the Minnesota Assistance Council for Veterans.
Registration is required for this free event. Open to the public; lunch will be provided.
