ACME Session: Women in Migration
Thursday, April 27 | 6:30 pm 
Salt Lake City Public Library, 
Main Library


Learn about migration and how it impacts our communities with University of Utah assistant professor of ethnic studies Annie Isabel Fukushima and colleagues from The Institute of (im)Possible Subjects—a transnational feminist collective of artists, writers, and researchers.


Through film screenings, performance, and a video/media making workshop, this UMFA ACME Session seeks to create dialogue and imagery reflecting the experience of women in these migratory times. All ages, genders, and national origins are invited to this timely discussion as we grapple with our twenty-first-century reality—people, family, and even objects on the move.
