The More the Obstacles Fall Between Us: An Exhibition and Performance of the Welcome Project at the Porter County Museum

porter-county-museumAt the Welcome Project, co-directors Liz Wuerffel and Allison Schuette believe in the power of stories to make a difference, and with the help of Valparaiso University students, faculty and staff, they’ve been collecting stories in our region for four years.
