“Iowa Intersections” interview screening
October 9 @ 2:30 pmFree
“Iowa Intersections,” a partnership between the City of Literature and the University of Iowa’s Center for Language and Culture Learning, is a community-based multilingual digital storytelling initiative. Working with partners such as Kirkwood Community College, Open Heartland, and the Congolese Association, this initiative works with recent immigrants to the area to help them tell their stories. A handful of the first stories from this project will be screened at this presentation.
This project aims to share and uplift stories that celebrate the cultural and linguistic diversity in our area. In addition, it creates opportunities for undergraduates to develop their intercultural communicative competencies —their ability to use their language skills to ethically engage with our multilingual neighbors.
