Virtual Welcoming Rhode Island Festival Summer Event
This summer we are celebrating all Rhode Islanders and newcomers in our diverse community, highlighting World Refugee Day, Immigrant Heritage Month, and the beautiful cultures represented here in the Ocean State!
Tune in every Wednesday to watch unique videos featuring local community members and artists sharing their cultures and talents through musical performances — and even some poetry!
Many of our participants have filmed their videos at home during the last few weeks so that they could share something special with YOU!
Our first video features Nima Mehri Komeleh sharing his rendition of an Iranian song and a personal story about something very dear to him that helped him endure many years in a refugee camp.
