BIMI Cultures in Community Mural @ the IGS Library!

The IGS Library is so pleased to partner with the Berkeley Interdisciplinary Migration Initiative (BIMI) to display this mural. It is a colorful and joyful addition to the Library.

The IGS Library seeks to be a welcoming place for all UC Berkeley students. We want the IGS Library to better reflect the diversity of the student, staff, and faculty in such a way that says "this is your space, you belong here".  This is the first of what we hope will be several murals in the library that will help our students see themselves and their communities reflected in the work that they and IGS engage in.

The mural was unveiled on May 4th as part of the BIMI’s Student Showcase of work for the Cultures in Community Program. The mural features images of Sikh, Afghan, Ethiopian, and Yemen communities all taken by the students in Cultures and Community Program. 

The next time you visit the IGS Library, please take a moment to reflect on the beauty of these communities, and the amazing work of UCB students.
