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.
