Past Events

September 18th: Divided We Fall screening and discussion
The Center at West Park will be presenting the award-winning, full-length feature documentary, DIVIDED WE FALL: AMERICANS IN THE AFTERMATH (running time, 90 minutes), by Valarie Kaur and Sharat Raju. The film focuses on violence and hate crimes against the Sikh community and perceptions of “the Other,” post-9/11.

The mission of The Center is to invite and challenge us to explore who we are and dream of who we might become: as individuals, as a community, as a world. Our motto is “DREAM. REAL. HARD.” This deeply moving and important film is an opportunity to encounter and engage with some hard, but essential issues. The film will be followed by a discussion.

Date: Sunday September 18th from 7:30 pm to 9:30 pm

Location: West-Park Presbyterian Church, enter through the Amsterdam Avenue entrance

Ticket: $10 suggested donation at the door


June 16th-19th: Bridge to Transformation concert series
Taking place over four nights in mid June, the Bridge to Transformation concert series is designed to introduce The Centre to the community. The concerts are simultaneously a fundraiser for West-Park and a demonstration of what The Centre is becoming and how it will extend the historic West-Park legacy of being a transformative presence in community. Each concert and its hosts will be an expression of the Centre’s commitment to live at the intersection of beauty and justice, aesthetics and ethics. For more information about these four exciting concerts, including details about the musicians and hosting groups associated with each concert, please see the concert series page.
