    All the Sacrifices You’ve Made / Todos los Sacrificios Que has Hecho
    A Project by Borderland Collective
    February 5 – October 16, 2022

    All the Sacrifices You’ve Made / Todos Los Sacrificios Que Has Hecho is a collaboration between students and staff from the College Assistance Migrant Program (CAMP) at the University of Washington and Borderland Collective, an arts collective from Texas. Participants curated photos from their family albums, made new photographs, and recorded their oral histories. The resulting exhibition creates a uniquely personal connection between the viewer and the families and serves as an acknowledgment of the contributions, resilience, joys, and sacrifices made by farmworkers from the Eastern Washington agricultural regions of Yakima and Wenatchee.

    Hear from Borderland Collective’s curators Jason Reed and Mark Menjivar along with Luz M. Iginuez, former director of CAMP at the University of Washington, in this program presented on Jan. 29, 2022:

    The exhibition was created by Borderland Collective’s Mark Menjivar and Jason Reed with CAMP staff and students including Luz Iniguez, Natalia Esquivel Silva, Orfil Olmos, Gabriela Ruiz, Moises Mendez, and Alondra Torres.

    In the adjacent gallery, this contemporary exhibition is complemented by a selection of archival items from the Washington State Historical Society’s collections exploring the political and economic histories of land and labor in the region.

    When the All The Sacrifices You Have Made / Todos Los Sacrificios Que Has Hecho ends, the family photographs and oral histories will be added to the WSHS permanent collections, preserving these meaningful histories for generations to come.

Seattle Live Aloha Hawaiian Cultural Festival
Seattle, WA
The Live Aloha Mission:

The Live Aloha Hawaiian Cultural Festival serves to promote, perpetuate and share the Hawaiian culture in the Pacific Northwest by enriching and strengthening the Hawaiian community and celebrating the arts and culture of Hawai’i.

This family-oriented cultural event is a great opportunity for Washington residents to experience the culture of Hawai’i that is available to them right here in the Pacific Northwest. The Census Bureau estimates that there are 50,000 Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders in Washington State. Out of this number, 17,491 people migrated from Hawai’i to the Greater Seattle area from 1995-2000. As the population of Hawaiians grows in Washington, so does the number of generations born here away from their home and culture. The Live Aloha Hawaiian Cultural Festival is Washington State’s premier Hawaiian cultural showcase, a celebration of Hawaii’s music, dance and history intended to preserve and perpetuate the unique island traditions.

Seattle Center Festál
Seattle, WA

Seattle Center Festál presents Sea Mar Fiestas Patrias in partnership with Sea Mar Community Health Centers.

Sea Mar Fiestas Patrias commemorates the independence of Latin American countries, many of which celebrate their national independence day in the month of September. It is a festival to celebrate history, while taking pride in the new generations of Latinos who now call the United States home.

Throughout the two-day event at Seattle Center, attendees can enjoy delicious traditional Latin American food and cooking demonstrations, live music, traditional folk dance performances, art exhibitions representing Latino culture, free health screenings, children’s activities and more.

This event is free and open to the public.

HISTORY

Sea Mar began hosting Sea Mar Fiestas Patrias over twenty years ago in the South Park neighborhood of Seattle. Sea Mar extended the celebration to Seattle Center when they joined Festál in 2010. Since then, the festival has been put on every year during one weekend in mid-September. On Saturday, Sea Mar hosts a parade and community festival in South Park, which has become a great tradition that many families look forward to year after year. On Saturday and Sunday, Sea Mar hosts a large festival at Seattle Center with a variety of fun activities for everyone of all ages to enjoy in celebration of Latino culture.

The festival is an important celebration for Sea Mar because its organization was founded by a group of Latino community leaders in 1978. This group sought to address the healthcare needs in western Washington, specifically among the Spanish-speaking communities. Sea Mar understands the barriers Latinos and other immigrant communities may face when navigating the healthcare system, pursuing a higher education, or simply trying to make a living. For this reason, Sea Mar goes beyond primary care and has established additional programs, services, and events like Sea Mar Fiestas Patrias to celebrate Latino cultural traditions.

Seattle Center Festál
Seattle, WA

Seattle Center Festál presents Sea Mar Fiestas Patrias in partnership with Sea Mar Community Health Centers.

Sea Mar Fiestas Patrias commemorates the independence of Latin American countries, many of which celebrate their national independence day in the month of September. It is a festival to celebrate history, while taking pride in the new generations of Latinos who now call the United States home.

Throughout the two-day event at Seattle Center, attendees can enjoy delicious traditional Latin American food and cooking demonstrations, live music, traditional folk dance performances, art exhibitions representing Latino culture, free health screenings, children’s activities and more.

This event is free and open to the public.

HISTORY

Sea Mar began hosting Sea Mar Fiestas Patrias over twenty years ago in the South Park neighborhood of Seattle. Sea Mar extended the celebration to Seattle Center when they joined Festál in 2010. Since then, the festival has been put on every year during one weekend in mid-September. On Saturday, Sea Mar hosts a parade and community festival in South Park, which has become a great tradition that many families look forward to year after year. On Saturday and Sunday, Sea Mar hosts a large festival at Seattle Center with a variety of fun activities for everyone of all ages to enjoy in celebration of Latino culture.

The festival is an important celebration for Sea Mar because its organization was founded by a group of Latino community leaders in 1978. This group sought to address the healthcare needs in western Washington, specifically among the Spanish-speaking communities. Sea Mar understands the barriers Latinos and other immigrant communities may face when navigating the healthcare system, pursuing a higher education, or simply trying to make a living. For this reason, Sea Mar goes beyond primary care and has established additional programs, services, and events like Sea Mar Fiestas Patrias to celebrate Latino cultural traditions.

Wassmuth Center for Human Rights

The annual Change Your World Celebration is the signature fundraiser for the Wassmuth Center for Human Rights. Proceeds from this important evening guarantee our program success each year and advance our statewide mission of promoting respect for human dignity and diversity through education.
The 2022 Celebration theme is “The Art of Human Rights” with cohosts Dan Prinzing, Wassmuth Center Executive Director, and Rocci Johnson, community “powerhouse of acceptance.”
The relation between human rights and the arts is not obvious. Human rights are commonly understood as a set of internationally agreed norms and standards, covering economic, social, cultural, civil and political rights. But human rights are more than a legal instrument – they are a powerful moral notion associated with the idea human dignity and, as such, are capable of galvanizing artists and the common citizen alike. (Rovisco & Musiyiwa, “The role of the arts in promoting a culture of human rights”)
This year we feature Idaho artists, musicians, and dancers as each uses their creative expression in a commitment to human rights. Special segments include Reham Aarti (mosaic artist), Ken McCall (metal artist), Benjamin Victor (sculptor), Filip Vogelpohl (glass artist) and Open Arms Dance Project.

    All the Sacrifices You’ve Made / Todos los Sacrificios Que has Hecho
    A Project by Borderland Collective
    February 5 – October 16, 2022

    All the Sacrifices You’ve Made / Todos Los Sacrificios Que Has Hecho is a collaboration between students and staff from the College Assistance Migrant Program (CAMP) at the University of Washington and Borderland Collective, an arts collective from Texas. Participants curated photos from their family albums, made new photographs, and recorded their oral histories. The resulting exhibition creates a uniquely personal connection between the viewer and the families and serves as an acknowledgment of the contributions, resilience, joys, and sacrifices made by farmworkers from the Eastern Washington agricultural regions of Yakima and Wenatchee.

    Hear from Borderland Collective’s curators Jason Reed and Mark Menjivar along with Luz M. Iginuez, former director of CAMP at the University of Washington, in this program presented on Jan. 29, 2022:

    In the adjacent gallery, this contemporary exhibition is complemented by a selection of archival items from the Washington State Historical Society’s collections exploring the political and economic histories of land and labor in the region.

    When the All The Sacrifices You Have Made / Todos Los Sacrificios Que Has Hecho ends, the family photographs and oral histories will be added to the WSHS permanent collections, preserving these meaningful histories for generations to come.

Festa Italiana Seattle
Seattle, WA

Welcome to Seattle’s 35th Annual Festa Italiana! Festa Italiana is an all-volunteer community organization that produces an annual series of events the last week of September, culminating in a FREE Italian Festival. Since 1988, we have been celebrating the cultural roots of Italians and Italian-Americans in the Pacific Northwest by promoting the arts, the food and the culture that are uniquely Italian.

In 2022, the Italian Festival will again be back at Seattle Center and we are very proud that out of all 25 annual festivals at Seattle Center, The Italian Festival was the ONLY “in-person” event of last year. So, thanks to our sponsors, vendors, chefs and entertainers, and to our volunteers, and YOU, our beloved patrons and supporters!

Now it’s time to come celebrate our 35th Annual which promises to be bigger and better than ever!

 

Music

Our Headliner this year will be a rockin’ 6-piece from Salinas, CA called the Anthony “Nino” Lane Band, covering all your Italian favorites through the decades with an emphasis on danceability! Their lineup features two native Italian singers, two Latino & Latina vocalists, guitar, bass, drums, keyboards, saxophone and violin! They will be doing three shows for us over the weekend so watch for those, especially on Saturday evening, the night of the “All-Star Italian Jam.”

About

The Black Parents Alliance works within the community to discuss relevant topics, gain information, and make decisions to improve the education of our children. We advocate for policies that improve the intellectual, social, and emotional success of Black scholars and families; empower and give voice to the concerns and successes of Black families and scholars in Tacoma; and mobilize allies within the community to highlight the need for more robust systems of support for Black scholars.

While leaders and elected officials trumpet the importance of family, current policies and practices at the federal, state, district and school levels rarely provide sufficient support to teachers or to parents, nor is anyone held accountable for comprehensively and consistently engaging a diverse range of families. Further, although there are excellent parenting education programs currently in use across the United States, many of them do not possess the depth of cultural relevance that allows the curriculum to fully resonate with Black parents, in particular.

BPA believes in prioritizing conversations about race, culture, class and gender in the context of family engagement; not to say that these things must, or should, be at the forefront of all of our conversations, but rather to say that those of us who provide services and solutions should learn as much as we can about the context of race and culture bias in which our children and families are embedded. It is critical for us to make conscious decisions about engaging with family and community members in ways that demonstrate a deeper and more complete understanding, as part of our efforts to build positive relationships that ensure parent engagement is an ongoing series of supports that create a strong foundation of connection, particularly in the early years.

GOALS

  1. Meaningful engagement of parents of Black youth
  2. Build the capacity of parents and service providers for partnership
  3. Improving life outcomes for Black youth

 

PARTNERS

  • Tacoma Urban League
  • Peace Community Center
  • Tacoma Public Schools

Seattle Center Festál presents Diwali: Lights of India in partnership with Northwest Share. This year’s virtual festival features music, dance, visual art, martial arts, a cooking demonstration and more.

HISTORY

Diwali (Festival of Lights) is a major cultural celebration observed throughout India every fall. It symbolizes the victory of light over darkness, good over evil, and knowledge over ignorance. Light is a metaphor for knowledge and consciousness. During Diwali in India, houses and business locations are brightly illuminated with lamps, diyas (oil lamps), and candles. Lakshmi, the Goddess of Wealth, is worshiped for prosperity. Diwali is celebrated with families and friends, wearing new clothes, partaking in family feasts, enjoying delicious sweets, sharing gifts and most importantly, setting off firecrackers!

Northwest Share is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization based in Seattle, founded in 2000 to promote arts, culture, tradition, heritage, education, health, and humanities. Northwest Share organizes many arts and cultural festivals all around Washington State in partnership with City of Redmond, One Redmond Foundation, City of Bellevue, City of Issaquah, Festál, Seattle Center, Washington State Parks, Northwest Folklife, etc. The organization also runs a free vegetarian food truck and distributes free food to people.

About

The Black Parents Alliance works within the community to discuss relevant topics, gain information, and make decisions to improve the education of our children. We advocate for policies that improve the intellectual, social, and emotional success of Black scholars and families; empower and give voice to the concerns and successes of Black families and scholars in Tacoma; and mobilize allies within the community to highlight the need for more robust systems of support for Black scholars.

While leaders and elected officials trumpet the importance of family, current policies and practices at the federal, state, district and school levels rarely provide sufficient support to teachers or to parents, nor is anyone held accountable for comprehensively and consistently engaging a diverse range of families. Further, although there are excellent parenting education programs currently in use across the United States, many of them do not possess the depth of cultural relevance that allows the curriculum to fully resonate with Black parents, in particular.

BPA believes in prioritizing conversations about race, culture, class and gender in the context of family engagement; not to say that these things must, or should, be at the forefront of all of our conversations, but rather to say that those of us who provide services and solutions should learn as much as we can about the context of race and culture bias in which our children and families are embedded. It is critical for us to make conscious decisions about engaging with family and community members in ways that demonstrate a deeper and more complete understanding, as part of our efforts to build positive relationships that ensure parent engagement is an ongoing series of supports that create a strong foundation of connection, particularly in the early years.

GOALS

  1. Meaningful engagement of parents of Black youth
  2. Build the capacity of parents and service providers for partnership
  3. Improving life outcomes for Black youth

  • Tacoma Urban League
  • Peace Community Center

One of the goals of capitalism is to make every creation a commodity to be sold. This is why, particularly for those of us who identify outside of or beyond paradigms centered around commerce – and those of us who are descendants of people called subhuman often struggle to locate pure pleasure, creativity and joy within ourselves and our writing practices. This generative webinar offers a joyous space with a mixture of lecture, meditation and grounding rituals, writing practices, exercises and prompts for reflection. Our mission, should we choose to accept it, will be to reject past-, pain- and trauma-centered narratives and re-center the expansiveness of what we can create when we fill ourselves (and each other) up with the sacred essence of bliss, possibility and inspiration.

Seattle Center Festál
Seattle, WA

Seattle Center Festál presents Hmong New Year Celebration in partnership with Hmong Association of Washington (HAW). The festival celebrates the end of the harvest season with intricate clothing, dance, food, and more.

HISTORY

The Hmong people are an ethnic group who have maintained their own language, customs and ways of life, while adopting the ways of the country they live in, since the Hmong do not have a country of their own. The Hmong New Year Celebration was created to give thanks to ancestors and welcome a new beginning. This is the biggest festive holiday celebrated where Hmong communities exist. Traditionally, this celebration lasts for ten days, but has been shortened in the U.S. Everyone dresses in traditional Hmong clothing and enjoy traditional food, dance and music. One very popular part of the Hmong New Year is, ‘Pov Pob’ tossing ball between two people, a form of courtship.
