"Earth Harmony" Coming together as ONE : Aug. 22nd



Colored Pencils Art and Culture Council invited you to  "Earth Harmony" event on Aug. 22nd, 11am-3pm at East Portland Community Center where we will create sacred space for us all  to meet.  We will take you to the spirited world that tugged in our city like no where else with music, ceremonies, rituals, world cuisine and fine art from our talented families.

At 11 am.,  Rodolfo Inyan Luta Red Stone Serna will open the event with his hand drum and elder John Bravehawk from Native American Community will offer wisdom on how to live in harmony with earth and with one another.  Ronault "Polo" Catalani will  bring us together as MC.

Our Native American neighbors, Turquoise Pride, will bring their pow wow drummers and once again Mexica Tiahui , our Indigenous American from Mexico group, will lead us all to perform 4 directions ritual.  Hmong community will dance their spirited dance which you will be part of it (Salavan dance).  Chata Addy will bring his Ghana drums and asked you to be part of the drummers and help bringing him back to Africa.  

Poetic Somali community will perform their cultural dance before we end the journey with our Iraqi Community who will take us around the gym with their powerful community dance by angelic musician Ronny Hermiz. The performance will end at 2.30pm.

This event is audiences' interactive event so prepare to dive into your neighbors' spiritual cultures with open heart.  At this sacred space, we ask your permission to take you to where many of our new Portlanders came from.

Admission is free with $5 donation suggested to support the ColoredPencils Art and Culture project.  Free world cuisine snack and drink will be available from 11am-1pm.  Please don't miss this opportunity to come together as one.

"Earth Harmony" community building project is organized by Colored Pencils Art and Culture Council with the support from Portland Park and Recreation’s Equity and Inclusion department, grant funding from East Portland Neighborhood Office and  sponsorship support from New Portlander Programs, Office of Neighborhood Involvement, PoenixLotus Photography and group of volunteers from Portland's diverse communities whom we couldn't do it without!
