2018 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Allison will revive the lost stories of the Kalmyk Mongolian people who first settled in the U.S. in the early 1950s in Northern Liberties. The interviews that she conducts with three generations of family members will be shared on YouTube and in a blog to preserve these histories in the midst of an ever-rapidly gentrifying neighborhood. The voices of 12 Kalmyk people will be at the forefront of these story pieces with their shared lessons and perspectives, followed by Allison’s own personal reflections and narrations. This is phase one of what Allison hopes to be a larger project that preserve the traditions and culture of Kalmyk people.
