This year marks the 10th Annual Thanksgiving Celebration at Nationalities Service Center. This reoccurring event has become an institution at NSC, and we are expected several hundred of our newest Philadelphia neighbors and their friends to attend. The event attracts clients new and old, blending American and newcomer traditions with delicious food and the sharing of dance and music across cultures. Not every guest will share a language, but that will not stop them from sharing food and friendship. Join us and help serve food or other volunteer activity!
This State of Young Philadelphia event, hosted by the Mural Arts Young Friends Collective, will begin with a brief discussion of the Southeast by Southeast project and the issues that refugees have faced that have brought them to Philadelphia, as well as some of the issues that face them today. In addition, event participants will have an opportunity to screen print tote bags with Burmese, Bhutanese and Nepali inspired designs, as well as sample Burmese foods and view (with the opportunity to purchase) traditionally woven bags and garments. To conclude, the group will take a walking tour around the neighborhood to look at the murals that have been created through this project, as well as other cultural landmarks nearby. This event is limited to 30 participants.
