What's next this summer?

Dear Friends,

July was amazing for the Bowls Project with many awesome friends coming to share music, ritual and workshops. And we have many more coming up this month! Charming Hostess invites you to The Bowls Project at YBCA where you can share a secret and listen to the secrets of others during gallery hours. Or, participate in music on Thursdays, ritual on Fridays and hands-on workshops on Sundays. We will be playing music from The Bowls Project to introduce the weeknight programming below, and some weekends too. All events take place at:
