The Rian Immigrant Center is dedicated to providing a welcoming and inclusive environment to all in our diverse community. We believe that through community building, we can achieve a more respectful and aware society. To that end, we offer monthly intercultural events which are open to the public, as well as our annual Black and Green Celebration held in the spring.
Storytelling and Cultural Sharing Events
Listening and learning from each other is a great way to gain an understanding of and appreciation for our different cultures. In partnership with community organizations, the Rian Immigrant Center hosts storytelling and cultural events that feature people from different backgrounds sharing life experiences, photographs, or art that contextualizes their culture. We invite our community to attend and participate in our monthly intercultural events at our welcome center and at other locations around Boston.
Black and Green Celebration
Hosted in partnership with the Montserrat Aspirers, our annual Black and Green Celebration brings together residents of Greater Boston for an evening of intercultural dialogue and exchange. Since 1993, this event has celebrated the many contributions of Boston’s diverse immigrant community to the city’s culture, politics, sports, and businesses.
