This year, we are offering HOME 2021 as a series of dispersed events spanning the summer. These events will be small, in order to conform with public health guidelines, and will take place outdoors on Lynden’s grounds. We hope that these events, when taken together, will capture the spirit of art, food, and performance that we experienced at the HOME 2019 outdoor festival.

Join us for a fashion show featuring traditional cultural wear, contemporary wear, and high fashion from refugee designers. Culture-Identity-Fashion is organized by Chin youth leader and HOME Refugee Steering Committee Member Biak Hlawn in collaboration with Lynden. As emcee, Hlawn will present and share the individual and cultural meanings behind each garment worn and the diversity of refugee communities in Milwaukee. Members of the public that attend are encouraged to wear at least one ornament or piece of clothing highlighting their own cultures and traditions. There will be live musical interludes in between the different portions of the fashion show, and food will be available courtesy of the Burmese community.
