'We’re Glad You’re Here' is a community-based oral history project that aims to preserve the memory, artistic urban expressions, and life stories of Mexican migrants who lived or are still living in Washington, D.C., specifically of the neighbors that give life to the Mexican Cultural Institute. Young artists who identify themselves as part of the Mexican or Mexican-American community interviewed their family members from different generations to collect their life migration stories and oral traditions.
