Illuminate - Community Cultural Celebrations Monthly event series!
Please join us at the Union Cultural Center for an inclusive night of cultural celebration. The intention of this fun, free, family-friendly event is to engage and educate through performance, food, and community interaction. Each month a different cultural art form will be examined, celebrated and shared, beginning with a brief introduction. This will be followed by an engaging performance, and conclude with an opportunity to participate. By highlighting the social and historical significance of traditional multicultural practices, 'Illuminate: Community Cultural Celebrations' mission is to offer and encourage the community to respectfully engage and learn from one another through cultural arts. All ages are welcome, and the youth are especially encouraged to attend. The importance of learning about and understanding cultures outside of one's own, particularly at a young age, is imperative for our future generations.

Keerai Farm We are building Keerai Farm as a POC and family-centered space, where folks can come to feel comfortable on the land and connect to nature, explore culture through food, medicine, and nature, and nourish and heal. We try to grow food with the least harm to the earth, and we focus on growing food that is important to many different cultures. We are making this space available for farmers who have previously lost access to land through colonial violence, forced migration, or institutional racism. We create space for people to celebrate and maintain culture, earn income, and build community.
