Wednesday, June 14, 2017

JHP Legacy presents the 3rd Annual Multi-Cultural Heritage Festival on Saturday July 15, 2017 at Shorewood High School Theatre, 17300 Fremont Ave N, Shoreline 98133.

The performances start at 7pm. Open Market and Live band and Public Arts exhibits starts at 5:30pm through 6:45pm in the Cafeteria.

Based on the outstanding support received from the City of Shoreline, 4Culture, Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council and Shoreline School District, the Festival is Free for all Shoreline Students!

For the past several years, JHP Legacy has focused on cultural education throughout our communities; JHP Legacy believes in diversity and cultural education; most of the cultural events JHP puts together are to educate the less privileged, that is, people who have not had the chance to see other parts of the world or other traditions and cultures.

Under the direction of the Artistic Director of JHP Legacy, Eben Pobee, the Multi-Cultural Heritage Festival is a myriad of traditional dances and music practiced by various cultures. This year's exceptional program features world-renowned guest performers representing Ghana, Bosnia, Mali, Senegal, Aromiya, India, Hawaii, Nigeria, and Guinea.

This year, JHP will present a vibrant and unique celebration featuring unparalleled music and dance performances. At this event, we will educate people on an African Chief Installation / Procession process, an art of exhibition on how a Ghanaian Chief is publicly accompanied with drums and music.

Northwest audiences are incredibly fortunate for the opportunity to witness such an event with so much education incorporated! JHP Legacy has the ability to celebrate past traditions while expanding to embrace new ideas and foreign influences through traditional music and Dance!
