The purpose of this project is to increase awareness of issues of immigration, censorship in the arts and radical socio-political movements spurred by repressive governmental institutions on example of former USSR. All participants will have outstanding knowledge or personal experience with Communist Russia of 20th century and seeking refuge for creative and expressive purposes in the United States. The focus of these programs will be on the struggle of expression amidst the repressive confines of the USSR.
 
This program was made possible by a grant from the New Jersey Council for the Humanities, a state partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Any views, findings, conclusions or recommendations in this program do not necessarily represent those of the National Endowment for the Humanities or the New Jersey Council for the Humanities.
