Headscarf Story Circle: The Gift

May 13 @ 9:00 am-12:00 pm


The Minnesota Humanities Center (MHC) is excited to host Headscarf Story Circle – a series of four offerings that recognizes the strength and resiliency of women. Join us as we gather together through the shared connection of the headscarf and its complexity. Events feature engaging activities that inspire perseverance, hope and healing. Guests are encouraged to wear a headscarf or head dress that is symbolic of anything from a fashion statement, cultural identity, health related, or memories, and beliefs.

Our first session, held in March, included inspiring stories and conversation over tea. Our second session is centered around “The Gift.” Participants are encouraged to bring an object that is symbolic of their own personal life lesson, acquired strength, or journey of resiliency – such as a book, food item, photo, or cultural piece. Or they may choose to offer something intangible such as a song, poem, or dance. Each person will share a story of the item they are gifting. Then each listener will select a gift based upon the story that most impacts them. The object itself may be one that is given or can be returned to the owner at the end of the experience. Through the act of gift sharing, participants will leave feeling connected and uplifted.

A breakfast buffet with live music will be available from 8:30-9:00 only. The program will begin at 9:00.
