Please join us for a magical evening of poetry and music, performed in the ecstatic tradition by the amazing all-volunteer troupe from Rumi’s Caravan. 100% of event proceeds will be used to ensure that sustainable leadership development programs within Sonoma County continue, and THRIVE.
Rumi’s Caravan was first assembled in Sebastopol, CA in 2000 as a vehicle to convey a love of the oral tradition of poetry. The original intention was three-fold:
To support local community benefit organizations;
To build community; and
To help restore the oral tradition of poetry to inspire audiences with a new imagination of the possible.
The Caravan is both an event and a performance company who continues to delight audiences with their eclectic mix of music, poetry and festivity. All proceeds from their performances go to support local community organizations and groups that have benefited in the past include the Center for Climate Protection, the Siskiyou County Public Library, the Gualala Arts Council, the Ceres Community Project, Youth Speaks and others.
Rumi’s Caravan has been part of a growing international renaissance of interest in poetry and story learned and shared by heart. In this small way, they hope to contribute to the restoration of the wholeness of the world.
The performance will begin promptly at 7pm.
If you are planning to join us for dinner (a delicious meal of Persian delicacies,) please arrive at 6pm.
Beer and wine will be available for purchase throughout the evening.
