Over 70 area artists are joining creative forces to make 100 hand-painted ceramic mugs in support of the Berkshire Immigrant Center. The project, Vessels for Change, will culminate in a celebration at Bright Ideas Brewing on the MASS MOCA campus on Wednesday, November 14 from 6-8 pm. These mugs will be filled with beer before going home with their lucky new owners.
Vessels for Change aims to raise $10,000, equivalent to approximately 5% of the Berkshire Immigrant Center’s annual budget. The Center’s Director Brooke Mead says this donation will be a game changer.
The mission of the Berkshire Immigrant Center is to assist individuals and families in making the economic, psychological, and cultural adjustments to a new land. Each year they provide assistance to over 800 individuals from more than 80 countries. Their work navigating the complex U.S. immigration system, promoting civic engagement, and facilitating cultural integration is invaluable. By helping immigrants meet their basic needs, and supporting them in their efforts to become active participants in our community, the Center builds bridges of understanding and cooperation across cultures. Their work results in strengthened communities, reunited families, refugees protected, higher employment income and economic self-sufficiency for newcomers.
