Tour Dates

Thank you for your interest in Refuge Lansing. The traveling exhibit is available for display at schools, libraries, places of worship, community centers, hospitals, businesses and other organizations.

The exhibit consists of a book, informational materials, and easy-to-assemble displays (fourteen 20" x 30" storyboards with easels). Hosting venues can display all or a portion of this collection as space allows.

As the mission of Refuge Lansing is engagement and outreach, we ask that each exhibiting venue host an event at which a partnering refugee agency representative can give a presentation and Q&A session about refugee resettlement. Events vary in size and exhibits range from one day to two weeks or more, depending on the venue.

The companion art book is integral to the exhibit, with in-depth stories, photographs and information about resettlement in the Lansing area. We'll provide 'display only' copies for the exhibit, and we'll have them available at your event for a minimum $25 donation to any of our four partner refugee agencies.
