Also, on May 18th outside the Discovery Center in downtown Turners Falls Dave Brule and the Nolumbeka Project presented Day of Remembrance: Commemoration of 343rd anniversary of the Massacre at Peskeompskut. The Nolumbeka Project seeks to spread a more accurate depiction of the native peoples and their history. Watch to learn more!

We also have videos featuring the recent Radical Interconnectedness Performing Arts Festival that took place in Turners Falls. The festival took place in several locations across downtown, including the Discovery Center, FAB clothing store, and The Church of Pod. The Shae theater hosted performances as well, featuring Alex Demelo and United Arc Theater: Performances by Individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, Cynthia Snow: Poetry and Song- Elders and Experience of Alzheimer's and Terry Jenoure performing Pelala: A Music and Solo Spoken Word and video installation.

On the way is a video featuring the recent silent auction and musical performances for Child Haven International hosted by St. Kazimierz in Turners Falls.
