March 13 Cultural Conversations at BAM

March 13 Cultural Conversations at BAM

Cultural Conversations’ March meeting will be a unique event featuring storytelling and a presentation by internationally renowned local artist Humaira Abid. Co-hosted by the City of Bellevue and the Bellevue Arts Museum (BAM), the program is free and open to everyone. Abid will share her exhibition “Searching for Home,” which focuses on the journey undertaken by families suddenly forced to leave their homes.

This month’s meeting will take place 1-2:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 13, at BAM, located at 510 Bellevue Way NE. Now in its seventh season, the city’s Cultural Conversations program offers an opportunity for community members to enjoy tea and conversation, and to learn about Bellevue’s thriving diversity.

To preview the art, exhibition galleries will be open the same day 11 a.m.-1 p.m. and again 2:30-4 p.m. with museum guides available. Participants can also learn more about the resources that exist for refugee resettlement, as well as the challenges faced by immigrant women as they begin the process of establishing home in a new land.

The event is recommended for individuals ages 13 and up. Registration with BAM (or by calling 425-519-0770) for this free event is strongly encouraged; free but limited parking is available at BAM (enter from Bellevue Way Northeast heading north). Carpooling is encouraged.
