Rising Tide Beach Party

The Water Is Rising

We were honored to welcome Kathryn Blume, Climate Activist & Author (and co-creator of the international peace project Lysistrata Project) – and we thank her for the hearty humor about a seriously deep subject, even as we all search for tips on how we might save the world. 

This offering featured Kathryn’s inspiring personal talk about the issue of climate change, and how she became an Earth Activist. Nine local actors read Ms. Blume’s hilarious short story Coming To Town. Special guest artists (and local musical wonders) Duffy Bishop & Chris Carlson sang the breathtaking blues.

At Cerimon House, we believe that we are all the “traffic”…and the best way to get to our events is to walk, bus, bike, or carpool. Portland Trimet bus lines 8, 17 & 72 all lead to our crossroads. And at our new building, we will have ample bike parking, 90% energy-efficient heating & cooling systems, and other green technologies.

“Kathryn is a Citizen Artist who is wide awake and sees what the future holds. She also happens to be a national treasure – and we are proud to call her our colleague.” – Cerimon House
