The event will also include a presentation of authentic cuisine prepared by members of the Mera Kitchen Collective, and a photography series by the Brazilian artist, Camila Franco Ribeiro Gomide. From 6-7pm, audience members will enjoy the culinary contributions of immigrants as they sample food curtesy of the Mera Kitchen Collective – an organization that empowers female immigrants through food entrepreneurship. At this time, audience members can also view a series of photos that are of an immigrant and one item from their home that is important to them. The series, prepared by Camila Franco Ribeiro Gomide, aims to humanize each person and demonstrate how similar all people are.

The musical presentation will begin at 7pm and will feature Pique Collective performing a series of vignettes based on poems by Lucas Chib. These selected poems deal with the realities faced by immigrants and refugees. The event is free and open to the public.
