OneLife Institute presents “Transformative Visions,” a multimedia art show and spoken word/jazz concert with a message of peace and possibility, from 2:00 - 5:00 PM on Saturday, March 14, 2009, at Studio One, 365 - 45th St., in Oakland. Admission is free and open to the public.

Scheduled to coincide with the annual observance of A Season for Nonviolence and the anniversary of the U.S. invasion of Iraq, “Transformative Visions” is intended to both challenge and inspire by offering spiritually-rooted responses to the critical concerns of the present day.

The concert features jazz greats RHQ – the Richard Howell Quintet – with Destiny the “Harpist from the Hood.” Spoken word artists will perform original works that carry messages of positive social change. And more than a dozen Bay Area visual artists will display works affirming values such as dignity, freedom, compassion, interdependence, peacemaking, justice, and healing. The art exhibit will remain up through March 28.

“’Transformative Visions’ centers on the power of the arts as ministry and activism,” says Rev. Liza Rankow, founder and director of OneLife Institute. “In these times of local and global violence, economic crisis, and social division, it’s important to come together in community and affirm that each of us carries a creative vision. Within each of us is the power to transform ourselves and our world.”
