FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: 13th Annual One Wave Gathering

Hello Friends,

We are a local nonprofit who put on an annual arts and culture event called One Wave Gathering celebrating South Pacific and local Indigenous cultures.

We would very much appreciate if you are able to share our press release with your readers:

For Immediate Release - Pacific Peoples' Partnership (PPP) is proud to announce our 13th Annual One Wave Gathering, a vibrant celebration of South Pacific and Indigenous cultures on Lekwungen territory in Victoria. Mark your calendars and plan to attend some thought-provoking events this September!

At One Wave Gathering, artists, speakers, and leaders share stories through song, dance, theatre, traditional food, and art. One Wave is a vision articulated by many voices and an opportunity for guests of all ages to learn and interact with Pacific knowledge keepers and artists. This year’s gathering will celebrate allyship and resilience, as communities from the North and South Pacific come together in the spirit of navigating shared waters.

Offerings you may enjoy this September include online screenings of opera, theatre, and film, pop-up performances, and a Flux Gallery digital media exhibit. This year will also see the unveiling of the Pacific Peace House Post, a two-year collaboration between Lekwungen carver Bradley Dick and Solomon Islands carver Ake Lianga, at Macaulay Point in Esquimalt.

Due to COVID-19, some events will not be announced in advance, so join us on Facebook to avoid missing out. We hope to see familiar and new faces join the canoe at One Wave this year as we ride the next Wave into resurgence!

One Wave Gathering is organized by Pacific Peoples’ Partnership, a local non-profit organization that supports South Pacific and Indigenous community projects.
