All Suitcase Stories programs aim to reduce bias and prejudice towards immigrants and refugees and to enhance empathy and understanding.
Suitcase Stories Live—virtual or staged events
Our signature program features professional and emerging storytellers sharing personal stories with audiences of 100+ guests. Suitcase Stories performances are hosted in partnership with arts organizations, businesses, faith institutions, libraries, NGOs, and schools. Showcases feature personal migration stories told by diverse voices, which can include a mix of exclusive Suitcase storytellers and/or voices from the community (i.e. students, employees, neighbors, etc.)
Suitcase Stories Unpacked – virtual or in-person
To help people further “unpack” their personal migration stories and connect with neighbors of diverse backgrounds, IINE offers ‘Suitcase Stories Unpacked,’ a storytelling workshop series. The program can be offered independently or combined with a graduate showcase, if desired.
