REDDING– Untold stories of refugees from Laos (B2W) is a project of the Center for Lao Studies. B2W is made possible with the generous support from the McConnell Foundation, Turtle Bay Exploration Park, California Humanities, and Central Valley Community Foundation.

Between Two Worlds will present and juxtapose these crucial stages of refugees from Laos and multi-ethnic Lao American history through the representation of four homes. As they move physically and symbolically through each, visitors will be asked to contemplate ideas of “home” as seen through the eyes of people for whom the notion is precarious, and for those who have lived or are still living “between two world.” The exhibit highlights the ways in which the refugees from Laos migration exerted pressure on cultural norms, and how survival involved both radical loss and creative adaption.
