The mission of Spontaneous Celebrations is to create and sustain a community cultural life that unites and empowers people for positive change through the arts; to produce seasonal celebrations in the Jamaica Plain and Roxbury neighborhoods; and to maintain a Community Cultural center for all.
Our philosophy is based on:
- The strength, enjoyment, and learning that comes from discovering and interacting with the many cultural and ethnic traditions that exist side-by-side in our neighborhoods.
- The belief that involving as many different groups as possible in the creation of our community center and festivals is an effective way to eradicate racism and increase communication, trust, and a shared sense of belonging.
- We believe that community-based arts and education provide a context for sharing and developing cultural traditions.
