Community Drum Circle

Written By University of the West Author

UWest is pleased to offer a community drum circle as part of  the weeklong celebration of International Education & Interfaith Week. (Visit https://www.togethera-part.com for a listing of other scheduled activities.) This event will take place on Wednesday, November 17 from 4:00 to 6:00 pm (PST).

A drum circle is an inclusive activity that has been known to foster commarderie and healing for the community. A drum circle is any group of people playing (usually) hand-drums and percussion in a circle. They are distinct from a drumming group or troupe in that the drum circle is an end into itself rather than a preparation for a performance. The drum circle offers equality because there is no head or tail.

Drums will be provided, but participants are welcomed to bring their own. Everyone is welcomed.
