A series of 10 collages to raise awareness about language diversity and the need for language access in North Central Florida. The collages visualize the stories of multilingual community members about the joy they associate with their heritage languages, but also the challenges they have faced due to lack of language justice. Each collage has images that hold personal or cultural meanings for the community members who were part of this project. Birds, as a symbol of migration, are a common element across all the collages.
The collages, along with the multilingual stories, have been presented in different public events in Gainesville, Florida; and are the central pieces of the exhibit We Are Here: Stories from Multilingual Speakers in North Central Florida at the Matheson History Museum.
