Sarīkojums notiks angļu valodā un lūdzam jūs aicināt savus amerikāņu un cittautiešu draugus! Pielikumā varat lasīt par izciliem lektoriem, kas noteikti arī visiem jums interesēs: Pēteris Dajevskis, Rita Laima Bērziņa, Maija Hinkle, Māra Pelēce un Linda Rink.
Esam pagodināti, ka tanī dienā mūs arī apsveiks Latvijas goda konsuls Filadelfijā John Medveckis, Lietuvas goda konsule Filadelfijā Krista Bard un Linda Rink, kas vada Estonian American National Council Filadelfijā.
Gaidam jūs kuplā skaitā!
Dear members, friends and supporters!
On May 19th, the Philadelphia Society of Free Letts will host "Reflections on Cultural Identity/Double Duty." We have planned this event to share information about Latvia, celebrate it's rich history and centennial, not only with Latvians, but with the larger community in Philadelphia.
The day's events will be in English and we encourage everyone to invite their American (and non-American) friends and neighbors. In the attached information you can read about our distinguished guests; Peteris Dajevskis, Rita Laima Berzina, Maija Hinkle, Mara Pelece and Linda Rink.
We are honored that the day will open with remarks from the Honorary Consul to Latvia in Philadelphia, John Medveckis, the Honorary Consul to Lithuania in Philadelphia, Krista Bard, and Linda Rink from the Estonian American National Council.
Reflections on Cultural Identity -
an exploration of the story of identity and
how we document and reflect our stories.
▪ Peter Dajevskis considers Latvian identity formation during the first Independence period and into WWII, life in the DP camps and emigration to the US. His story and his roots spring from his father, the well-known artist Evalds Dajevskis.
▪ Representing those who were born and grew up in the US,
Rita Laima Berzins will share documentation of her life in Latvia during the totalitarian state from her recently published book Skylarks and Rebels.
▪ We’ll look back at our stories through alternate media when filmmakerMara Pelece shares her work about the significance that diaspora activity held for Latvian society abroad.
▪ Maija Hinkle, who has done extensive study of the return migration through the recently established “LaPa” museum, will share her findings and new projects.
▪ Philadelphia resident Linda Rink will expand on her personal experiences growing up in the American Estonian community with broader observations gleaned as executive director of the Estonian American National Council.
▪ Throughout the day, the audience will participate in further open discussions of specific aspects of the story of identity through various forms of cultural roots and identity discovery.
Admission for the all day event is a donation
to the Latvian Society starting at $10.
