There are powerful stories among us, all we have to do is listen.
Join us for an Arts Festival event with stories from Iowa's newest book, We the Interwoven: Volume 2, untold stories from the heartland of living between two worlds.


Featuring storytellers from across Iowa: Dawson Davenport, a member of the Meskawki nation, shares the native story you don't read in the history books, Antonia Rivera tells of a life spent fighting to thrive after crossing the American/Mexican border at six years old, Hieu Pham explores what we owe our mothers in the story of her Vietnamese-American family, and Sarah Elgatian tells a tale of an Armenian-American grandmother with ties to a world she never knew.

Join us for an event that reveals powerful stories of those living among us.
