Green Card Voices

Green Card Voices returns to the Festival of Nations with their photo exhibit “Immigrants Telling Their Lexplore5ife Stories”, designed to advance their mission of sharing immigrant stories with as many people as possible. The exhibit includes portraits of immigrants, their 200-word bio, a quote and a QR code (viewers can scan them with iPhone/iPad and watch the first-person video stories). The latter is especially a novel way to engage with the audience and has been received with positive reviews.
