Our Event Series

Past Events
In 2017, we launched our first event, showcasing the Latin American culture with artwork and textiles from Colombia’s Fresco Exchange, the Guatemala Art and Culture Connection and TRAMA textiles. 

 

Upcoming Events
On Friday, May 4, 2018, we are hosting our next Global Arts, Eats and Beats in Render Coffee, housed within CIC Boston's innovation center. The next region of the world to celebrate is West Africa! Our programming this session includes music by visiting artists from Guinea, Famoro Dioubate and Missia Saran "The African Tina Turner" Dioubate, accompanied by Master Dancer and Boston local Joh Camara. We'll feature fine art exhibitions, an African marketplace including handmade items from Amooti, Zainab Sumu, and other vendors from the region. We will provide samples of the delicious food, coffee from our friends at beantrust and Render Coffee, and Taaling Tea, a new product line from our very own Bintou Kunjo.
