Friday, April 26: Fremont Room meet and greet

Interfaith Solidarity Cascadia invites you to a little meet and greet at the new home of its communal altar.  The altar is essentially a miniature of the giant sukkah Occupy Portland had at its original encampment (Lownsdale Square/Beta Camp), incorporating pieces from there and established when Occupy Portland moved into its previous home, the Che Room.

The new (the "third incarnation of the Sacred Space!") altar is slightly smaller and shares a multipurpose footprint.  A design for a more permanent one is under way, to be unveiled at a new OPDX headquarters which may open within the next two months.

Learn what is happening now with ISC, and what plans we have for spring and summer.

At this event we will also be dedicating a new "universal interfaith icon" of a sort, as the altar conspicuously lacked a focal sacred object.  Its creation is commissioned to a certain local artist whose work is also now on display at a gallery within the walking distance, so you are also invited to a tour of that show after this event is over.

When: Friday, April 26, 4-5:45 p.m. Saturday, April 20, 10-11:30 a.m.
Where: Fremont Room, 1131 SE Oak St, Portland, Oregon 97214-1344
(Use the Oak Street doors - unlocked at 3:30 p.m. 9:30 a.m.; if locked call 971-256-1006)
