Community Program



The events, workshops, and artist residencies of our community program advance the Samavesha mission by bringing art into the lives of a diverse public. The program is sited at schools, camps, health care facilities, community centers, parks, hospitals and festivals, engaging the public with an array of Samavesha artists and collaborators.


Past, ongoing, and future projects include the annual Create-With-Nature Earth Day Celebration at Stinson Beach and Art in Nature Festival; a series of San Francisco Bay Area Park Events in the summer of 2011; concerts, workshops and interactive activities in public and private schools, camps, hospices and hospitals; multi-disciplinary performances for festival and fairs. We work with diverse communities.
