6th Annual Season Of Light Celebration: A Cross-Cultural Winter Festival 1:00 PM Portland Public Library - Rines Auditorium , Portland, ME

One Tree Wholistic Learning Center presents its 6th Annual Season Of Light Celebration: A Cross-Cultural Winter Festival.

This free event is for all ages and will be on Saturday, November 18, 2017 from 1:00 – 4:00pm and will be located in Rines Auditorium at Portland Public Library’s Main Branch (5 Monument Way).

The afternoon shall include storytelling, arts and crafts, music, food, and a presentation of six cultural holidays—each incorporating the symbolism of light: Eid and Ramadan (Islam), Christmas (Christianity), Kwanzaa (African American / Pan-African heritage), Hanukkah (Judaism), Diwali (Hinduism), and Winter Solstice (Secular). There will be a silent auction featuring a variety of items from local businesses, which will raise critical funds for this non-profit organization.

One Tree Wholistic Learning Center promotes social change within institutions and communities through education and grassroots organizing rooted in peace, pluralism, and partnership. One Tree Wholistic Learning Center operates the Roots and Fruits cross-cultural preschool in South Portland, as well as the Community Branches Project and the Seeds Institute.

Guests at the Season of Light Celebration will learn more about each program and engage with One Tree Wholistic Learning Center’s mission to promote cultural partnerships and work towards social justice. The Season of Light Celebration draws guests from diverse cultural communities and encourages people to share their heritage, stories, traditions, and ideas.
