re-imagine global community benefit concert

Event Date: 
Sunday, November 4, 2007 - 2:00am - 6:00am

re-imagine global community is a benefit concert held at the Capitol Hill Arts Center on November 3, 2007 to raise awareness and support for the iLEAP International Partnerships for Creative Change and Community (iPC3) Fellowship program. The event blends the musical talents of Rochelle House (http://www.rochouserecords.com/), who is a Seattle based International recording artist and a 2006 Earshot Vocalist of the Year Nominee.

Highlighting iLEAPs iPC3 program, Rochelle House is helping this local nonprofit bring attention to 10 grassroots leaders from community-based organizations in Asia and Africa, all active participants in social change at the local level. This is a remarkable group of women and men, representing 8 countries, who have committed their lives to working directly with socio-economically marginalized groups in some of the most geographically remote areas in Asia and Africa. The Fellows will come to Seattle for a 10-week intensive program in community building, professional growth, and practical action around positive social change.

iLEAP: The Center for Critical Service, is a Seattle-based nonprofit which creates and inspires social change in communities in the U.S. and around the globe. Through international service learning programs, iLEAP is creating a global network of leaders who have the courage and inspiration to transform communities and pursue creative work in service of others. iLEAP programs combine seminar coursework with service learning projects at local community-based organizations.

The re-imagine global community benefit is an event for musicians and community members alike to come together with their passion and creativity. Together we re-imagine and re-construct the landscape of global community as we connect with others internationally who share the same commitments around social justice and progressive social change.

Doors open at 7pm, with raffle tickets, food and drink all available at the event. Tickets cost $15, $25, or $50, which includes a gift from iLEAP.
