SUMMER 2022

3 DAYS OF FAMILY FUN

JOIN US FOR DRUMS IN THE PARK

In partnership with the Los Gatos Chamber of Commerce, on Saturday, July 16, 2022, from 12:00 PM to 7:00 PM at Town Plaza Park in Los Gatos, we will feature artists, speakers and storytellers

 

Through the power of drumming and storytelling, and in honor of Nelson Mandela International Day, we will kick off in July 2022 with “Drums in the Park,” celebrating and amplifying the voices of women and girls having honest conversations about racism and the impact of skin color, social class, and ethnic cultures on their individual lives.
