Calling all Lao Diaspora!
Do you have photos worth a thousand words? Does it tell a story about your family’s history? Does it reflect who you are? Does it speak of the journey of where you came from and where you are now?
In 2013, LLOTP launched a new project photographing and collecting stories of the Lao Diaspora starting in Minnesota, across the U.S. and in Laos. These stories will be presented through a visual and literary arts piece that will be archived on the website, displayed at a gallery reception, and presented for public education to learn about our shared journey and history.
Little Laos on the Prairie, in collaboration with Laos in the House and artist Chantala Kommanivanh, want to share your story, and those of friends and family! Please spread the word and learn more at: http://littlelaosontheprairie.org/laodiasporaproject
The Lao community’s stories will help educate the public and officials about our shared journey that has been left out of mainstream history. This is a chance for your story to be honored to give our community a chance to reflect, relate and learn from others in the Lao Diaspora.
