Cia Siab (Hope) in Wisconsin: A HMoob (Hmong) Story

Planning of an 800- to 1,000-square-foot traveling exhibition that would celebrate the 50th year of Hmong resettlement in the U.S.

Cia Siab (Hope) in Wisconsin: A HMoob (Hmong) Story is a traveling exhibit that will launch in 2025 to celebrate the 50th year of Hmong resettlement in the U.S. It is a community-based project that brings together Hmong community voices, humanities scholars, and museum experts to create an immersive traveling exhibit that utilizes the arts, audio, Hmong narratives, and interactive media to illustrate the historical trauma and resilience of Wisconsin’s Hmong rural and urban communities. This project employs community-based participatory research alongside arts-based and trauma-informed methods with Hmong women, youth, elders, and LGBTQ individuals. The proposed activities will be conducted in five cities with a large Hmong population: Eau Claire, La Crosse, Madison, Milwaukee and Wausau. This exhibit’s goal is to foster intergenerational and cross-cultural connection, empathy, and dialogue.
