Opening minds, one heart at a time: Join bereaved fathers Rami Elhanan and Bassam Aramin as they share their stories of loss and their unique choice of reconciliation amidst the Arab Israeli conflict. Participate in a discussion on the human side of the conflict and why relationship building, mutual understanding of the “other side,” and framework for reconciliation are necessary for any sustainable peace agreement. Rami and Bassam are former co-Directors of The Parents Circle Families Forum, a joint Israeli-Palestinian organization made up of more than 600 bereaved families.

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.
In fall 2019, UMBC's Albin O. Kuhn Library Gallery presented Experimentalist: The Art of Robert W. Fichter, the first retrospective of the artist’s career in over thirty years. We are pleased now offer this exhibition in an online version, available here.
PORTRAITS OF LIFE: Once Upon A Story
April M. Rimpo and Elaine Weiner-Reed
In this Ekphrastic exhibit, the paintings of Rimpo and Weiner-Reed will inspire written word, poetic, and musical compositions from viewers. The community is invited and encouraged to participate in-person in the special events scheduled throughout the exhibit for written word readings and musical presentations.

What is thread? Is it just a long, thin strand of cotton, nylon, or other fibers? What is the thread that holds us together? How is thread made? This exhibit explores the answers to these questions and much more. This Call for Artists show features 20+ different artists from around the area and their interpretations of what thread means to them using a variety of mediums. Available in an online catalog format!
The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra introduces BSO Sessions – a new digital concert series that follows the BSO’s journey in bringing inspirational works of orchestral repertoire to life as its musicians return to the stage. Programs will include beloved masterpieces; music by living composers and composers of color; and hidden treasures in orchestral repertoire, with episodes premiering October 14 at 8 pm and released weekly thereafter.
We’re excited to announce the launch of the “Virtually Creative” after-school program.
The “Virtually Creative” after school program is an extension of our onsite programming that takes place at John Ruhrah Elementary/ Middle and Tench Tilghman Elementary/ Middle. In an effort to continue supporting our schools we are providing afterschool programming online. Each day, students receive homework help and hangout time to connect with friends. They will also have virtual Restorative Practice circles every Friday. Below is a detailed breakdown of the Virtually Creative schedule.
A live online venue for artists to perform & support living expenses, and for the community to connect through live music despite COVID cancellations.
Tune in to concerts by professional musicians and music students on Facebook or Instagram and support artists through suggested online “admission fees” directly contributed to artists.
