Gallery 101

Currently in Gallery 101

Ni de Aquí / Ni de Allá, Not from Here / Not from There

This show will hang in Gallery 101 in celebration of 25 years of the project until November 3, 2017.

Ni de Aquí / Ni de Allá, Not from Here / Not from There is a project of Student Action with Farmworkers, Randolph County AIM Club, Randolph County Migrant Education, and the Center for Documentary Studies, with artist-in-residence Robert Shreefter.

Viewed as an exhibit and organized in a hand-bound book, the narratives and artwork (paste paper collage) of students from Randolph County, North Carolina, tell powerful stories of migration and adjustment in a new culture. In Ni de Aquí / Ni de Allá, Not from Here / Not from There young people from the Randolph County AIM (Action, Inspiration, Motivation) Club “write frankly about the barriers in their lives,” says Robert Shreefter, a writer who coordinated the project. “All tell of missing and longing for Mexico; feeling the hurt of racism; feeling far from parents as they speak more English and become ‘less’ Mexican. Many identify problems in school with language difficulties and difficulties being understood.”

For more information about the exhibit or Student Action with Farmworkers contact SAF at 1317 W. Pettigrew St., Durham, NC 27705, 919-660-3652,

Ni de Aquí / Ni de Allá, Not from Here / Not from There

Ni de Aquí / Ni de Allá, Not from Here / Not from There es un proyecto de Acción Estudiantil con Trabajadores Agrícolas, el Club AIM del condado de Randolph, el Programa de educación migrante del condado de Randolph, y el centro de estudios documentales, con el artista Robert Shreefter.

Este grupo de estudiantes del Club AIM (Acción, Inspiración, Motivación) del condado de Randolph escriben con franqueza sobre las barreras que enfrentan en sus vidas. Algunos cuentan de como extrañan o anhelan estar en su país nativo; de sentir el dolor del racismo, de sentirse alejados de sus padres a la vez que hablan más inglés y se hacen “menos” Mexicanos; muchos identifican problemas en la escuela por las dificultades con el idioma y por ser entendidos.
