Set in Alta California in the 1830s, we have retained all of Rossini’s buoyant good humor and added a fresh twist for audiences of all ages.

Rosina is new in town. Fresh from México, she lives with her controlling, suspicious Uncle Bartolo, who is planning to marry her off to one of his rich, elderly friends. But Rosina is in love with the handsome chavo she saw in the plaza. She knows he likes her too, but they have a problem…she speaks only Spanish,
and he speaks only English! Enter the brilliant, bilingual vivales, Figaro! Porque a veces, ¡hasta el lenguaje del amor necesita traducción!

Enjoyed by audiences of all ages. Each year, Portland Opera To Go travels throughout Oregon and SW Washington schools and community venues with a full-staged 50 minute, English-language adaptation of a famous opera.

Oregon Humanities Conversation Project| Beyond Invitation: How Do We Create Inclusive Communities

Oregon Humanities Conversation Project| Beyond Invitation: How Do We Create Inclusive Communities

More and more organizations and communities are working toward being “inclusive.” But what does that entail? Having a statement at the end of a job announcement to encourage communities of color, queer people, and women to apply can be a start, but how do policies, environment, and culture support this invitation? How do they fail to support it? How do we know if a space is inclusive and accessible for all?

This is the focus of “Beyond Invitation: How Do We Create Inclusive Communities,” a free
conversation with Rachel Bernstein on February 9, 2018 at 2pm at the CCC and sponsored by Oregon Humanities. 

Rachel Bernstein is the partnership and training manager at Oregon Humanities. For the
past decade, as a political and nonprofit professional, her work has focused on building
the civic capacity and engagement of coalitions, organizations, groups, and individuals.
As a Conversation Project leader, she appreciates discovering what Oregonians are
already doing to create inclusive communities and what questions they are still
struggling with.
Through the Conversation Project, Oregon Humanities offers free programs that engage
community members in thoughtful, challenging conversations about ideas critical to our daily
lives and our state's future. For more information about this free community discussion, please contact Carissa at 502-487-6883 ext 104 or carissa@chehalemculturalcenter.org.

 Dia De Muertos Celebration | Day of the Dead Celebration

Dia De Muertos Celebration | Day of the Dead Celebration

Dia de Muertos Celebration (Day of the Dead)

WHERE: Grand Ballroom at the Chehalem Cultural Center
WHEN: Friday November 2nd, 5:00 – 8:00 pm
COST: Free

SPECIAL PERFORMANCE: Huitzilopochtli Aztec Dancers Performance at 5:30pm

After creating an Ofrenda (altar) together on October 31st, everyone is invited to come and celebrate Dia de Muertos (Day of the Dead) with festivities at the Cultural Center. Face Painting, Huitzilopochtli Aztec Dancers live performance, kids crafts and activities, live music, food and drink. All event activities are free to the public and for all ages to enjoy.

Dia de Muertos (Day of the Dead) is celebrated in central and southern Mexico at the beginning of November. While this coincides with the Catholic holiday, All Soul's & All Saint’s Day, indigenous people combined this with their ancient belief of honoring their deceased loved ones. It is believed that the gates of heaven are opened at midnight on October 31, and the spirits of all angelitos (children) are allowed to reunite with their families for 24 hours. Then, the spirits of the adults come down to enjoy the festivities prepared for them.

Dónde: Gran salón del Centro Cultural Chehalem
Cuándo: Viernes 2 de noviembre, de 5 a 8pm
Costo: gratis

Danza folklórica de Huitzilopochtli - comienza a las 5:30pm

Después de crear el altar de ofrendas juntos el 31 de octubre, todos están cordialmente invitados a venir a celebrar el día de muertos en el centro cultural. Habrá danza folklórica en vivo del grupo Hutzilopochtli, artesanías y manualidades para niños, música en vivo, comida y bebida. Todas las actividades serán gratuitas para el público de todas las edades.

El día de los muertos se celebra en México a principios de noviembre. Aunque este día coincide con una fiesta católica (el día de todos los santos), los pueblos indígenas combinaron sus creencias con las creencias católicas para honrar a sus familiares y seres queridos que habían fallecido. Una de las creencias de este día es que las puertas del cielo se abren a la media noche el 31 de octubre, y los despiertos y angelitos tienen permitido reunirse con sus familias por 24 horas. Es entonces cuando los espíritus y las almas de los adultos también vienen a celebrar y disfrutar las ofrendas que se les han dejado.

Community Ofrenda (Memorial)

WHERE: Butler Square, Downtown Newberg, Oregon
WHEN: Wednesday October 31, 5:00 – 8:00 pm
COST: Free

We welcome the community to add items to the ofrenda in celebration of the lives of family members that have passed.  We will provide items to add to the memorial, and everyone is welcome to bring items of their own.

Then, the spirits of the adults come down to enjoy the festivities prepared for them.

This is celebrated by the building of ofrendas (memorials), and community festivities that celebrate the time the living can share with the dead. The tradition of the ofrenda is to create a mainstay to greet the spirits when they arrive with candies, toys, tamales, chocolates, breads, candles, fruit, mole, mezcal, as well as photos, fashion magazines, cigars or folk art skeletons... and every ofrenda has pan de muerto and sugar skulls!

Directed by Sarah Andrews

Renowned for their incredible long distance running ability, the Tarahumara are the indigenous people who live in the northwestern region of Mexico.  Inspired by the real life stories of Tarahumara runners, Teatro Milagro’s newest bilingual play shares the story of a young girl and her coach, who sees her potential as an Olympic competitor.  Written by seasoned Milagro lead teaching artist and resident playwright, Ajai Terrazas Tripathi, ¡Corre, Corre! uses mythical imagery, dance movement, and poetic narrative to showcase a cultural perspective that inspires athleticism and perseverance.

This regional celebration of lavender, art, food, music, and exceptionally-made crafts is a unique and festive event which brings local lavender growers and the community together. The public is invited to attend at no charge.

Festival guests can enjoy a variety of juried art and craft booths, distinctive lavender products, purchasable fresh-cut lavender and lavender plants from local farms, the plein air art show, and lavender in myriad forms. Live music will be offered throughout the weekend and five food trucks will offer their full menus, as well as specialty lavender-infused food and beverage options.

The Paint Out takes place in the beautiful lavender fields of Oregon in the weeks prior to the Show and attracts both amateur and professional artists from around the Northwest and beyond.

This will be the second year of the youth art contest and the Essential Oil Showcase. Children can create artwork on site – all materials will be provided and ribbons will be awarded for exceptional artwork. The Essential Oil Showcase will feature lavender essential oil that has been judged and awarded; festival guests will have the opportunity to explore and vote for their own favorite oils.

Newberg Writing League

Come and write EVERY Saturday morning at the CCC!

Join other writers, at all levels, in crafting prose or poetry or anything else at all that can be formed from the putting together of words. A weekly prompt will be available, or you may work on your own project. We'll spend the first five minutes settling in and catching up, then shift into putting words on pages. This group is intended for community and accountability, and will not be workshopping pieces, though you are likely to meet others who are interested in workshopping outside this meeting. 

Location: Grand Lobby

Free!

Informal Facilitator: Brandi Cornelius brandawn@gmail.com
