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.
