Saturday, September 1, 2012 - 4:00pm - 6:00pm

Join us for an opening of the "Windows and Mirrors" community exhibition with music and stories by Jacob George. Light refreshments will be served. 

Jacob, a 30-year-old, three-tour paratrooper turned peace activist, is a cofounder of A Ride Till The End (ARTTE), a perpetual bicycle protest of the Afghan War that has covered over 7,000 miles in the United States since 2010.

Storyology 2012: Using My Heart

 

Budding immigrant filmmakers debuted their 3-minute masterpieces to a standing room only crowd at International House Charlotte on Friday, March 16, 2012. A story of treacherous journeys across the sea and prison escapes mingled with personal stories of a marriage broken by abuse, a student’s journey from a refugee camp to a Charlotte school, and an account of how a family got its start in the United States. Each story was different, but each painted a picture of the external and internal struggles faced by immigrants in North Carolina today.
