OUR COLLECTIVE WHY?
Soul2Soul is designed to engage, invigorate, and empower the African Diaspora and African Americans in Oregon. It is a catalyst to heighten understanding within and between our communities, to showcase our contributions of the arts to the world and to elevate our oneness in the spirit of Ubuntu (“I am because you are”). This vision is emboldened in our theme of: Building Bridges - Celebrating Black Resilience & Uniqueness.
The event will offer participants an outdoor and indoor experience with multiple stages featuring live music entertainment, “pivotal moments”, spoken word, African dancing and drumming. In addition, Soul2Soul will offer cultural food (Soul Food & African cuisine), vendor booths, health resources, children activities, and more.
In addition to previous years of celebration this year we are providing health screenings .
It is our way to take action and aid in the large health disparities affecting the " Black " community.
All services will be free to the public.
Soul2Soul embraces the importance of family and offers engaging activities for children, ensuring that everyone, regardless of age, can participate in this celebration of unity and resilience. Come and experience the joy, the laughter, and the connection that this vibrant festival brings.
