HARMONY honors cross-cultural collaboration on environmental justice projects in our community, and foregrounds the cultural values and convictions that give rise to the work of making making neighborhoods in our Duluth community healthier, more just and sustainable.
These cultural values and guiding philosophies will be expressed in speech, song, spoken word, poetry, hip hop and dance. During this afternoon, we aim to create a setting for community leaders and cultural workers to share ideas and deepen collaborations.
We will invite belief systems and values which challenge dominant paradigms, will engage in opportunities to actively reflect and respond, and will ultimately sit down at tables to share food, ask questions and create opportunities to further connect.
Discussion and performance will be interwoven with each other.
The Oreck-Alpern Interreligious Forum promotes respect, understanding, and peace among the diverse spiritual communities of our region through sustained cross-cultural dialogue, shared study, and collaborative projects and events. Our work represents an ongoing, growing, and deepening 12-year set of relationships and partnerships among in our region.
