Suitcase Stories, a collaboration between Massmouth and the International Institute of New England (IINE), honors the contributions of refugees and immigrants throughout the region through the timeless art of live storytelling. Local, foreign and U.S.- born residents perform first-person stories on themes of refugee resettlement and immigrant integration.
Suitcase Stories mainstage performances support IINE programming, including refugee resettlement, English language education, workforce training, citizenship services, and more. For more information, including how to purchase tickets, see the Suitcase Stories page of the IINE website.
