Description:
In a three-year cycle themed with World Migration at the Smithsonian Folklife Festival, this second year presents topics related to Migration across Generations. Visitors explore how American communities and cultures are transformed by the movements, displacements, and interactions of diverse populations over time, with the goal of obtaining insight into the growth of healthy inclusive communities across the country.

The focus this year is on the youth, young Americans whose families have arrived in this country within the last generations. These young people are Americans, raised in the United States. Some of them have been born here, others were brought here as part of a family group who immigrated. It is these first-generation Americans who live fully within a framework of biculturalism. Their parents and grandparents carry with them the language and customs of their country of origin, while the children spend their days in the local schools, becoming integrated as citizens of the United States.

Building on a small but innovative program from 2016, the 2017 program foregrounds the perspectives of youth, past and present. It invites intergenerational conversations about the interplay of migration, creativity, and culture, highlighting the social power of tradition and art. It focuses on how young people assume responsibility as bridge builders among communities, generations, and into the future. Today's generation of young people—ranging from their mid-teens into their mid-thirties—are the most racially diverse population in American history. As young Americans, they have a particular stake in the world they inherit together.

For this program, the National Mall became a space for performances, workshops, sports, visual arts demonstrations, and discussions. Themes of multilingualism, diversity and identity within and across cultural communities are addressed. These themes highlight the shifting notions of the sense of belonging, communication in both high-tech and traditional methods, and the disruptive and generative impacts of migration.
