Tamasha la Wakimbizi na Wahamiaji

Tangu mwaka wa 1979 jimbo la Washington limekuwa likiwakaribisha wakimbizi wanaokimbia mateso katika nchi yao ili kujenga upya maisha yao katika jumuiya yetu ya ndani, tangu wakati huo hakujakuwa na tukio kubwa lililoandaliwa ambalo lilizingatia mahitaji ya wakimbizi kama binadamu, kijamii na kiumbe wa kueleza. matukio yamekuwepo kwa ajili ya siku ya wakimbizi duniani mara nyingi ikihudhuriwa na wakimbizi wachache sana, mara kwa mara yamejikita kwenye hotuba rasmi, zikiungwa mkono na maonyesho machache tu. kwa Tamasha hili la Wakimbizi, tukio litaleta matumaini na furaha, litawaruhusu wakimbizi na wahamiaji kupunguza kiwewe chao na mateso yanayowalazimisha watu kuzikimbia nchi zao.

Katika miongo miwili iliyopita, idadi ya watu wa Washington imebadilika haraka. kwa mfano mji waKwa sasa Kent ni jiji la 10 lenye watu wengi tofauti nchini Marekani .Zaidi ya 45% ya wakazi wa jiji hilo ni watu wa rangi na idadi kubwa ya wahamiaji na wakimbizi kutoka kote ulimwenguni sasa wanaishi hapa, na wanatoka sehemu mbalimbali kama Ukrainia , Iraq Somalia , Burma , Mexico kutaja chache tu .wakati Washington inawakaribisha kinadharia wahamiaji na wakimbizi kivitendo jumuiya nyingi za kitamaduni hapa zimefichwa, na ukosefu wa fursa halisi za kubadilishana tamaduni za kweli , kwa kushiriki urithi na tamaduni zao ,na kuzingatia kuunganishwa na kujifunza kutoka kwa kila mmoja katika tofauti, Wakati huo huo matangazo mengi ya sasa na matoleo ya kitamaduni yanalenga hadhira ya Eurocentric na kupuuza utamaduni tajiri wa wakimbizi wahamiaji wa Washingtonian na asylee. Ulimwengu mzima kwa Wakimbizi utaandaa Tamasha la Bure la kila mwaka la Wakimbizi na Wahamiaji - mwingiliano wa kilele wa mkutano wa kitamaduni wa Washington katika sehemu moja , jukwaa ambapo kila jumuiya ya kitamaduni ya Washington itaalikwa kushiriki utamaduni wao, chakula, sanaa, ngoma na lugha yao . Tamasha hili litakuwa mahali ambapo watazamaji watapata utofauti wa utendaji wa kitamaduni wa kupendeza, mazungumzo ya kitamaduni, maigizo, mashairi na hadithi za wakimbizi. Hadhira itakuwa na nafasi ya kutangamana na mtangazaji na kushiriki katika shughuli mbalimbali za kitamaduni. tofauti na tamasha nyingine za kitamaduni za kikanda, Tamasha hili ni programu inayoongozwa na wahamiaji-na-wakimbizi na kuwajulisha wahamiaji.

      Washington's demographic has rapidly changed over the past two decades, with cities like Kent becoming some of the most diverse in the country. Despite this, many cultural communities remain isolated and lack real opportunities for intercultural exchange. Most regional cultural offerings are aimed towards Eurocentric audiences and overlook the rich traditions of Washington's immigrant, refugee, and asylee communities.

      The Refugee and Immigrant Festival, organized by Wide World for Refugee, is a free annual event that seeks to change this. It will be a platform for every cultural community in Washington to share their food, arts, dance, language, and stories. This festival will be a celebration of the diversity of our community, featuring colorful cultural performances, intercultural dialogue, drama, poetry, and more. Unlike other regional cultural festivals, this event is led by immigrants and refugees themselves and is informed by their experiences.

      We invite everyone in our community to attend and participate in this festival, where we can come together and learn from one another across our differences. Let's make this a day to remember, where we celebrate the strength, resilience, and beauty of our immigrant and refugee communities.
