From Carne Y Arena to the Classroom

April 5, 2022

10:00 AM - 5:00 PM 


Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s multi-sensory installation, Carne Y Arena, explores the human condition of immigrants and refugees through incorporating virtual reality into an immersive environment.  Based on true accounts, Iñárritu hopes viewers can develop empathy and understanding by focusing on the migration experiences of immigrants, asylum seekers, and refugees. These experiences serve as an opportunity for reflection about the role of immigration in our nation’s past and present: Why do people leave their homes? What do they experience as they journey from one place to another? And, how do people learn to adjust to their new life in new surroundings?

Migration stories, like those told in Carne Y Arena, serve as a connection to our collective past and to the lives of young people in our schools. Yet, too often, the children of immigrants find themselves isolated and misunderstood. In this workshop, led by the Executive Director of Re-Imagining Migration, we will share a research-based framework, tools, and classroom resources for supporting immigrant students and ways to teach about immigration to all young people to build bridges, empathy, and understanding across our communities.

Join us in this day-long workshop asking us to consider how we can apply the lessons of Carne Y Arena to the Classroom. This is a free workshop with CPE certification. Coffee and lunch will be provided.

Presented By Reimagining Migration and the Nasher Sculpture Center
