Immigrant & Newcomer Hangout

21 Aug 2022

Join us for an Immigrant & Newcomer Hangout! Whether you have just arrived here or you are a 1 or 1.5-generation immigrant that has been here many years, this space is for you! This hangout will be a casual, low-pressure space where folks can chat, make new friends, and have the option to engage in collage making and drawing. Refreshments will be provided. 

This event will be in-person only and will require pre-registration as we only have the capacity for 25 folks. You can register via Google forms or send an email to wren@eyelevel.art

This is a closed space for immigrant and newcomer folks and facilitated by Eyelevel's programming committee member, Yang Guo.
