N.O.A.H. Presents Free Community Peace Concert
Saturday June 13, 2009, 3-7 PM
The NOAH Project is presenting a free community concert in the parking lot of Central United Methodist Church located next to Comerica Park. The concert is to promote peace and raise awareness on the issues surrounding homelessness. We all claim to want peace in this chaotic world, let us claim to want peace in our own backyard. Anyone is invited to enjoy music, poetry, and speakers that talk about peace at home. All are welcome to celebrate our common humanity.
The NOAH Project is a homeless organization that provides a bag lunch twice a week and social services throughout the week. We seek to enlighten, encourage, and empower individuals to better their life situations. We also seek to promote awareness in the community on issues surrounding homelessness and poverty. It is a unique privilege to meet with individuals who are in pain and are hurting, for we were never meant to bear our pain alone. Each day at NOAH we realize how intertwined our lives really are and would like to share that with you in this community concert.
Hafsat Abiola once said, “Peace comes from being able to contribute the best that we have, and all that we are, toward creating a world that supports everyone. But it is also securing the space for others to contribute the best that they have and all that they are.” Peace comes through the solidarity that is developed through community.
Bringing to you the sounds of peace and justice are many wonderful acts including headliner Jocelyn B. & the Detroit Street Players, surrounded by the unique and eclectic sounds of Julie Beutel, shoe., the Y-Arts Deep River Choir, The Recovery Band and the N.O.A.H. Arts Collective band. Also featuring guest speaker Bishop Thomas Gumbleton and special poetry readings from local poets. Sponsoring this event are the wonderful supporters of the Y-Arts and Central United Methodist Church.
Central United Methodist Church is located at 23 E. Adams, Detroit, MI. For more information call 313-965-5422
