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
The four focuses of our ongoing programming are 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 enter our seventh year as an organization, and celebrate the first year in our newly renovated 93-year-old building: where we host gatherings, lectures, performances, workshops, retreats, ceremonies, conferences, art exhibits, as well as welcoming community rentals.
