RHYTHMS OF LIFE SERIES
WHAT IS RHYTHMS OF LIFE?
Many of the programs that surround Atumpan's Season of Events fall into the Rhythms of Life Series. The series is participatory and uses art, often music, to transcend culture, class, and disabilities in order to bring together a stronger sense of community.
ARE THESE PUBLIC EVENTS?
All of the Rhythms of Life additions to the regular season are open to the public. Most are at no cost, some require a fee.
Events in the Rhythms of Life Series are listed on the Community Events page as well as Atumpan's calendar.
