The Architecture of Family and the art of self-discovery

The Architecture of Family & the Art of Self-Discovery is a multi-media production that tells the story of how Stephen, rooted in fundamentalism, came out to his family and how they navigated the path of becoming the loving, supportive family they are today.

This production was written and produced by Stephen Marshall-Ward and will feature video interview clips of the family, live original music (performed by reSound: a Northwest Chamber Ensemble and Dave Beck, cellist), and sets designed to usher the audience into the narrative. It is presented by The Institute for Social Justice through the Arts (ISCA), a ministry of All Pilgrims Christian Church.

We want this story to be an example to broken families – even deeply shattered ones – that it is possible to heal and love each other.

Performances will be held on May 6th, 7th, 13th, & 14th at 7:30pm at All Pilgrims Christian Church in Seattle, WA.

The Concert is sponsored by the Music Department of Trinity Lutheran College and the Institute for Social Change through the Arts.

Soul Food: The Nourishing Power of Music and Word

Soul Food is a benefit concert for Community Lunch on Capitol Hill.  It will be produced by Tim Coghill, a member of All Pilgrims Christian Church, with support from The Institute for Social Change through the Arts.

Community Lunch on Capitol Hill, the sole beneficiary of the event, operates on a limited budget and serves hot meals to approximately 125 individuals on Thursday evenings at APCC. Additionally, CLCH also serves 250–300 lunch meals twice weekly (Tuesday and Friday lunches) at Central Lutheran Church. In 2013, 40,000 meals were served to members of the Capitol Hill and broader Seattle communities.

The vision for this event is rooted in the belief that music and words provide individuals with the spiritual nourishment and inspiration required to continue moving forward when faced with adversity. The concert will feature performers and the music or spoken word pieces that give them strength.

Please join us on November 23rd at 6pm. There is a $15 suggested donation at the door.
