The mission of Laos In The House is to promote storytelling in the Lao American refugee community through the mediums of art. By way of programming, events and partnership projects, we integrate storytelling with art, seeking to engage community members while giving voice to those who cannot do so for themselves, in the hopes of healing the scars of war and beginning the process of regular intercultural, intergenerational exchanges.

What We've Done So Far:

  • Curated the first ever art exhibition of all Laotian American artists in Philadelphia, in partnership with Legacies of War.
  • Produced a performance showcase of singers, dancers, poets, musicians and theatre actors from across the country.
