Description

Join us for the Welcoming Rhode Island Festival at PVDFest!!!

Dorcas International is excited and proud to announce its first-ever partnership with PVDFest. This June 2019 Dorcas International’s Welcoming Rhode Island Festival (WRIF) is joining the fun – and you’re invited!

This year we invite all PVDFest attendees to immerse themselves in a FREE unique, family-friendly and interactive multicultural experience with us at our station in Burnside Park on June 8, 2019!

This cultural and community initiative (WRIF) is an annual celebratory event that honors Immigrant Heritage Month, World Refugee Day, and all newcomers, cultures, and arts from around the world— it is an initiative that we have celebrated for more than 10 years!

If you would like to help fund our more than a decade long initiative in Rhode Island – please donate now!

Exciting things to expect for WRIF at PVDFest:

  • Diverse international performances

  • Makers market of authentic artisanal creations representing various international art forms

  • Educational activities that pay homage to those we serve

Also, at PVDFest, we will be revealing a never-before-seen temporary community art installation symbolizing diversity and acceptance in the Ocean State! We are partnering with talented and artistic minds in the community to create and exhibit this interactive art piece!

Follow us!! For more information and updates, we will be posting regularly on social media (Facebook & Instagram: @DorcasInternational) and at www.diiri.org!
