Milagro The Web

Posada Milagro 2010

Miracle Theatre Group invites the whole family to enjoy the Posada Milagro, to be celebrated Sunday, December 12th between 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. at El Centro Milagro (525 S.E. Stark St., Portland).
This community celebration filled with Latin American traditions reflects upon the journey of Mary and Joseph in their search for refuge and is day of fun for the whole family! The afternoon’s entertainment will also feature live music, dance presentations, arts and crafts workshops, bilingual storytelling for children under 5 years old, piñata- breaking for all ages and, of course, traditional pan dulce (sweet bread) and tamales!

This year’s celebration will once again feature two Spanish-language performances with a unique recognition of the feast of the Virgen de Guadalupe (2 p.m. and 4 p.m.). Admission to the event is free, but performances are limited to ticket-holders only. Free tickets will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis at the theater beginning at 1 p.m. on Sunday Dec. 12. Guests are encouraged to bring donations of canned food for the Oregon Food Bank.

Community Artes builds mutually beneficial partnerships through a variety of projects created with the community at large. In order to promote positive change, Miracle shares its institutional resources to support cultural competence, nourish creative skills, and promote the next generation of art.
Since its inception, Miracle has been approached by the community to create work that responds to the needs of the community.  With the creation of Bellas Artes in 2002, Miracle took a proactive step to provide bilingual and Spanish-language theatre as well as arts training that would carry forward the traditions of Latino arts and culture to future generations.  Miracle has taken deliberate action to reach out to the Spanish-speaking community by transforming its marketing practices and making significant investments in its bilingual and Spanish-language programs.  The success of these efforts transformed Bellas Artes as these productions were moved from Bellas Artes to the auspices of Miracle MainStage.
 
Over the past several years, Miracle has experienced a keen growth in demand from the community at large.  Miracle has responded generously; indeed its 2008 Strategic Plan included strengthening ties with the whole community and providing access for the community to El Centro Milagro. 

By the end of the 2009-2010 season, as we realized how much of Miracle’s work was now dedicated to these community-related efforts.  Supporting a wide variety of emerging and established arts and culture organizations has made it clear that Miracle has something new to offer the community that has emerged from its 27 seasons of experience: expertise, resources and cultural sensitivity. Miracle changed the name of Bellas Artes to Community Artes to acknowledge its commitment to the community.

Community Artes builds symbiotic relationships through a variety of projects created in partnership with the community. Miracle shares its institutional resources to support cultural competence, nourish skills, and promote the next generation of art.
