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 focuses on Community (commonality), Creativity (cultural arts), Curiosity (education), and Ceremony (celebrations.) We aspire to create space for a renewed humanity, and have built a convening space for events that exalt the human story, and bring about conversations that inspire.
We enter our seventh year as an organization. Last year we renovated our beautiful 93-year-old building, which is now open for the community as we host salons, lectures, performances, galas, workshops, classes, retreats, ceremonies, forums, art exhibits, and many other rentals.
Please explore this website (menu above) to learn about upcoming events, past gatherings, the space itself, and how you can become involved.
You are our welcomed guest
OUR SPRINGTIME FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN IS UNDERWAY.
Thanks for considering participating, your donation is tax-deductible and means the world to us. For the first time in our fundraising history, Cerimon House has been generously offered a 1-to-1 match on all donations if our spring fundraising campaign can raise $10,000 by June 1st. For every dollar you donate towards this goal, it will be matched by a remarkable and anonymous small group of donors. Please help us to reach the mark of this noble pledge, and unlock the matching funds that will enable our organization to thrive throughout the summer.
