At this encounter—“Welcoming the Stranger Then and Now”—join in a conversation about immigrant justice and struggles of access to freedom. Moderated by Julia Vogl, this discussion will offer timely resources to bring to your seder from panelists representing Jewish Alliance for Law and Social Action (JALSA), HIAS and Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC).

Suggested donation $5+. All proceeds will benefit MIRA, Massachusetts Immigrant and Refugee Advocacy Coalition.

Pathways to Freedom is a JArts public art project by internationally-acclaimed social sculptor Julia Vogl that will be installed on the Boston Common in April. During March and early April, Julia will hold a series of public “encounters” to provide material for the project.

Julia’s artwork will reflect the hundreds of conversations she will have in the Greater Boston area, asking people from all backgrounds about their journeys to freedom.

Drawing inspiration from these stories, and the symbolism within a Passover seder, Julia will create a larger-than-life visual representation around the Boston Common Parkman Bandstand. The installation will be on display from April 25 to May 2, 2018, during Boston Art Week (beginning April 27). To be part of this project, join us for an encounter with Julia. She will be available at events across the region from March 20 to April 8.

Find Julia at any of these locations to visit her cart, answer questions on the themes of immigration and freedom, create an individual Pathways button to take home and help create the final artwork.
