"Rotary to me is not just an organization that provides scholarships and hosts fancy dinners.. Rotary to me is.. impact. The impact of creating a vehicle for forming communities, and having the capacity for creating ingredients that are critical for peace building. To me, an artist, musician, and community organizer are the same since they all possess the same goal - to create. Whether that is artwork or a service project.. We are all artists because we can all create the world that we want to live in. " Says, Devankar Mukhi, the Event Organizer.
This event will award community peacemakers, including Dylan Morris, a senior at Oxford High School who founded No Future Without Today, a nonprofit dedicated to expanding access to mental health services.
This event will feature Michigan, Texas, and New York performers. Attendees will hear music genres from Indie/Alternative Rock, Pop, Rap, R&B, Hip Hop. A comedy bit, fire spin show, and a native Ugandan dance performance. "As an artist it's extremely important for me to use my art as a voice for change, being a part of this event is a perfect space that celebrates such ideas. This is our band's first show outside of Texas, and we are so excited to be coming to Michigan!" Said by Alex Oaiza, Indie/Alternative Rock Artist,
Vendor tables will include organizations such as the Rotary Clubs of Detroit, Livonia, & Southgate; Operation Pollination, an effort to protect pollinator habitats; Chole's Cowgirls and Indians, teaching native and Mexican American culture through crafts, jewelry, and clothing; Chaldean American Ladies for Charity, a nonprofit founded in 1961 dedicated to providing programs that guide, support and empower individuals to achieve self-sufficiency with dignity and hope.
