Resettlement Realities
More than 65 million people globally have been forcibly displaced due to war, persecution, violence, natural disaster, and other factors, including 21.3 million refugees. For most refugees, seeking safe refuge is the beginning of a journey that can take years - even decades - on the path to resettlement.

Resettlement Realities seeks to develop a better understanding of the complex and multidimensional resettlement processes, both globally and in the United States. This discussion provides a forum for dialogue that includes refugees who have experienced resettlement and the host communities who welcome them, as well as those who devote their time and resources to Chicagos refugee populations.

This afternoon program will consist of a reception for Chicago's refugee resettlement organizations and the communities they serve, a performance, and a panel discussion/community conversation. It is free and open to the public.

Reception: 12-1:15
Performance by Abraham Mellish: 1:15-1:35
Panel: 1:45-3

Galya Ben-Arieh, Center for Forced Migration Studies, Northwestern University

This program is presented in tandem with ART WORKS Projects' current photography and multimedia exhibition Sanctuary/Sustenance which traces the refugee journey from home through conflict and displacement to eventual resettlement in five U.S. cities: Chicago, Minneapolis, Pittsburgh, San Diego, and Seattle. The exhibition is open at 625 N. Kingsbury until May 18, 2017.
