Columbia Festival of the Arts presents the 2021 Columbia Film Festival, June 21 – 25! This 4th annual Film Festival will showcase more than 60 local, national, and international films for movie-goers to enjoy as part of this year’s virtual event. Featured are a varied selection of films from all genres including short and feature-length movies, documentaries, world cinema, special themes, Maryland-based films, as well as works by student filmmakers that touch upon current and relevant topics.
Saleem & the Music Lovers formed in 2005 with a simple goal to blend the live band tradition with elements of modern hip-hop. In the process of discovering their voice, they began to infuse elements of jazz, soul, and rhythm blues into their music. Saleem provides the perfect counterpoint to the melodies crafted by Topix, Sinseer, and Tangie Bee, The Music Lovers. Together, their powerful performances have won them fans from east to west and abroad, making them one of the most highly regarded groups on the underground scene.
Juneteenth dates back to 1865, and is the oldest national celebration commemorating the end of slavery within the U.S.
This June, the Jewish Museum of Maryland, in collaboration with arts and cultural organizations across Baltimore, will come together for a community reading of selections from Four Hundred Souls: A Community History of African America, 1619 to 2019 (Kendi & Blain, eds, 2021).
During the event we will deepen our understanding of the history of the holiday and explore its immense, contemporary significance.
Record your oral history interview for the Stories from Baltimore Teens project to speak, learn, and save how different generations respond to living during the pandemic.
This Special Collections project wants you to document those responses by collecting first-hand accounts through oral history interviews between teens and their parents or guardians.
Created in the style of StoryCorps, the Stories from Baltimore Teens project is meant to encourage recordings that are part conversation, part listening, and all sharing of another's experience.
One of Baltimore’s vibrant communities has anchored another tradition. The 5th Annual Cherry Hill Arts & Music Waterfront Festival will take place on July 4th, and once again will be held virtually. Organizers transitioned the festival to its virtual format after guidance and instruction from local and state authorities. Lineup and streaming information will be announced at a later date. The festival is free and open to the public.

Dear Educators and Parents,
I am putting together a community poetry project for kids. Adults can play along too.
For several years, I have run an annual poetry writing project. For one month, participants receive a daily writing prompt related to a theme. (In 2014 we wrote in response to Pantone paint colors; in 2019 the theme was Food). The goal is to write and share a newly drafted poem with the group every day. It’s a way of practicing writing with others.
Beginning March 23rd, our online schedule will reflect the live streaming options so that you can practice from home. Thank you for your support of your teachers and Baltimore Yoga Village at this time. We are pleased to serve you in this way.
