Walking Together weaves together words and music in a celebration of diversity as it explores the intertwined topics of migration, immigration, race, and ethnicity. This program is community centered and is structured to adapt with each new performance as a new group of readers, gathered from the community in which the performance takes place, speak the texts woven in and around the live music. Of course it would be lovely if brief community-building activities, followed by the sharing of ethnic food, is provided at the end of each performance.

“What a great program. The music was amazing and the speakers were wonderful. I hope there are plans for more events like this." - audience member
"I am a junior at Mahtomedi High School and a co-founder of S.A.F.E(Students Advocating for Equity). I serve on the Walking Together Board and will be a reader the night of the event. I jumped at the chance to be a part of this project so that I could bring the community together with a common interest in music. I fell in love with the writings because they show how important it is to love and embrace the background of yourself." - Walking Together Advisory Board member and reader
“A phenomenal, memorable production!” - audience member
