Identities in Migration: On Being a Somali-Mainer


What does it mean to be Somali in Maine? How have Somali-Mainer identities been shaped by migration?

The World Affairs Council of Maine, in collaboration with the Somali-Mainer’s Youth Network, will host a panel featuring Somali youth and elders from Portland and Lewiston. The panel will be moderated by Deering High School Assistant Principal and World Affairs Council of Maine Board Member, Dr. Abdullahi Ahmed.

This event is part of the Making Migration Visible: Traces, Tracks & Pathways exhibition, which brings together a dynamic group of contemporary artists whose work engages the theme of migration. Organized by the Institute of Contemporary Art at Maine College of Art, this exhibition is accompanied by 100+ events about migration, immigration, and border crossing hosted by collaborating partner organizations throughout the state. Events include companion exhibitions, lectures, films, performances, poetry readings, and community conversations. Please visit this link for a full list of events.
