August 15 – Community Volunteer Fair at Farmers’ Market
Bloomington Community Farmers’ Market, 401 N. Morton St., Bloomington, IN
10:00 am-1:00 pm | FREE
Lotus will be recruiting volunteers for its annual Lotus World Music & Arts Festival at the annual Bloomington Volunteer Network’s annual Community Volunteer Fair at the Farmer’s Market!
While visiting, you can also make art with Lotus! Participants will create Pahiyas Festa House decorations, a Filipino cultural tradition. Pahiyas, a harvest celebration, dates back to the 16th century and involves elaborate, food-based decorations. Participants will learn more about this colorful tradition and will use high-pigment markers to color plastic materials from recycled milk jugs, inspired by Pahiyas practices. All materials made during this workshop will be part of larger displays in the FREE Festival Arts Village on September 25-26.
