Where We Belong: Refugee Stories from Wichita is a collaboration between the Ulrich Museum of Art and CETARL (Center for Educational Technologies to Assist Refugee Learners), a research center led at Wichita State University by Dr. Mythili Menon. CETARL’s work focuses on assisting refugee and asylee learners with English language acquisition and other aspects of integration in a new school environment. To highlight CETARL’s important work and give it context, the exhibition spotlights the experiences of refugee families in Wichita, shedding light on the particular challenges these families face, narrating their experiences of resettlement and integration in a new life in the U.S., and celebrating their contributions to making Wichita a more diverse and culturally vibrant community.
