Today, people relocate and travel internationally more than at any other time in history. Whether while at home or abroad, how we view and understand diverse backgrounds is profoundly influenced by the stories we hear from neighbors, relatives, and colleagues, as well as our own interactions with people from around the world.
Suitcase Stories® provides a unique way for a community to explore migration through the art of storytelling and foster a more welcoming and inclusive environment for newcomers in neighborhoods, schools, and workplaces.
Suitcase Stories invites U.S.- and foreign-born residents to develop and share meaningful personal experiences of migration and cross-cultural exchange with others—from large audiences to small groups—of all ages.
Everyone has a Suitcase story. Unpack stories in your community with IINE.
Suitcase Stories® are made possible through a partnership between the International Institute of New England and Stellar Story Company. Click to learn more about Stellar Story Company.
