What does the American Dream Mean to You?

Wednesday, October 14th
12:00 - 1:30 PM
Latino Cultural Center, Lecture Center B2



How do you pursue the American Dream in your Life?

Does pursuing it alter, reinforce, or destory   identities?

In this nation of immigrants, we each strive for a better life, and negotiate our
own expectations with those of our families, communities, and wider society.
UIC is a microcosm of this diversity, and we can learn from one another as we
work to achieve our dreams and build a better world for all.

Come discuss these ideas and more at this Arts-Based Civic Dialogue on
Immigration, hosted by the Latino Cultural Center and the Asian American
Resource and Cultural Center.


Through a conversation over lunch, we will connect local to national and international concerns, providing a safe space to discuss this pressing issue through art, storytelling, and asset-based problem solving. By sharing the immigration experience of participants personal or
family journeys, we are hoping to create bridges and a sense of community.
