Cerimon House

where the community convenes to experience the evolving human story

Welcome friends, neighbors, and colleagues to Cerimon House, a nonprofit humanities and cultural arts organization, located in the heart of the Alberta Arts District of Portland, Oregon. 

Our "4 C's": 
Community, Creativity, Curiosity, Ceremony

Our ongoing programming is centered on Community (commonality), Creativity (cultural arts), Curiosity (education), and Ceremony (celebrations.) We have created a convening space for events that exalt the human story, and bring about conversations that inspire.

We are in our seventh year as an organization, and celebrate the first year of residency in our newly renovated 93-year-old building, where we host gatherings, lectures, performances, workshops, ceremonies, and art exhibits. We also welcome community rentals, and are a favorite space for retreats, conferences, weddings and other threshold events.

named after a character in an ancient tale (who also appears in the worKs of shakespeare), CERIMON of ephesus is known for being kinD & GOOD. And iT is in that spirit, that WE WELCOME YOU TO THIS HOUSE.
