Finding Home: Vermont’s Historic and Growing Diversity @ Latham Library
Apr 10 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Vermont is often described as culturally homogenous, yet French Canadian ancestry, European immigration, and refugee resettlement have all contributed to the state’s diversity.  This illustrated lecture by Vermont Folklife Center Co-Director Gregory Sharrow explores the vital cultures of Vermont’s immigrant communities, and highlights footways, religious culture, and traditional arts as they relate to personal and community identity in our state’s evolving cultural landscape.

This event is free, open to the public, and accessible to those with disabilities.
