Donate to Community Celebration of Place
Since 1998, Community Celebration of Place has honored hundreds of elders from every continent of the world through our Elders' Wisdom, Children's Song program.
This past year Executive Director Larry Long worked in partnership with the Southern Poverty Law Center with incarcerated youth in lower Mississippi and children from New Orleans. We created original works to not only help give them a voice, but to honor their wisdom. I also worked with deployed Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans, their spouses and children, in an effort to help reunite the family through the shared process of listening, creating and celebrating their stories.
Each year we continue to expand the Elders' Wisdom, Children's Song process in Minnesota schools and neighboring communities. We are currently building a new program for volunteers called Elders Circle. Our goal is to help foster a better learning environment where the face of every child is represented.
Through these programs and others, we continue to work with artists, teachers and community organizations to incorporate this process into school curriculums and community life. With your continued support we can keep this work alive, as well as preserve these life stories and make them freely available online for generations to come.
