The event creator says
On May 9, as part of my long-term What Is Home? project, through which I explore maps, home and memory loss, I will exhibit a new art installation and offer short readings from my memoir-in-progress. What Is Home? is an unraveling of the different strands of my journey as a transnational citizen: family history and borders; protest in a changing world; migration and movement; and health. Pushing the lines between public and private, my installation / performance creates space for audience members to engage with my work and delve into their own narratives.

Westbury High School students Purnima, Hemangi, Sagar, Kali and Barun who participated in my storytelling workshop will engage with audience, while women workshop participants will offer $10 neck-shoulder massage, $3 facial threading and home cooked snacks and tea. High school student Zainab D will offer henna tattoos.

The installation is open and free to the public and everyone is invited!

This project was developed in part through an artist residency (2012-14) with the University of Houston's Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts and funded in part by the Texas Commission on the Arts. In 2014-15, my project is supported in part by an award from Mid-America Arts Alliance, the National Endowment for the Arts, Texas Commission on the Arts, and foundations, corporations and individuals throughout Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma and Texas. "What is home?" is cosponsored by Neighborhood Centers Inc., and Voices Breaking Boundaries.
