Central Alberta Refugee Effort (C.A.R.E.) has been serving new immigrants in our community for over 35 years.  From C.A.R.E.’s founding to present day they have grown and expanded their program of support to newcomers in their transition to life in Red Deer. Together with C.A.R.E. the Red Deer Museum + Art Gallery (MAG) is pleased to tell the story of one of our new Red Deerian’s.  Asdolah Kheirandish came to Red Deer in 2012 as a refugee from Afghanistan with his wife and three young children.  A master rug weaver, his life has followed his art with twists and turns along the way, but like his rugs he has woven a sturdy foundation for his family.  The MAG will be telling Asdolah’s story and displaying the last rug he created by hand in Afghanistan on our community wall.

Admission is free, donations welcome.
