It was a joy to share music, color and community with the Bethany Center residents and fun to play both in the courtyard and on Capp St with Jessie McCracken

Feb 2020 TMU celebrated Fat Tuesday with Carnaval SF in partnership with Bethany Center Senior Housing and Ruth’s Table. TMU brought eco-arts to this intergenerational event. We were dazzled by live performances from youth Carnaval contingents and danced with over 300 community members.

Celebrate culture and community with the transformative power of music and dance at a Fat Tuesday event hosted by Ruth’s Table. 

CMC’s Young Musicians Program Teen Jazz ensemble will get our toes tapping and dancers from Sherman Elementary, June Jordan High School, and Moving Beyond Productions will inspire us. Special performance by Mixtiso, a world fusion dance ensemble whose founder teaches weekly right here at Ruth’s Table. 

Join us in Bethany Center’s community room at 580 Capp Street, 94110. Tuesday, February 25th, 5:30 – 7 pm. 

Let’s kick off the Carnaval season together.  There will be more performances happening in the Mission that night.

Each year, talented fashion designers are paired up with some very special models – the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence – to create outstanding runway looks using recycled and innovative materials.  Project Nunway challenges the designers to create outrageous fashion based on a theme. The theme for this year is “Decades of Indulgence: 1979 to 2019”.

The show also features extra-special guest judge Trixie Mattel, this is the year to be there or be square as the Sisters mark 40 years of promulgating universal joy and expiating stigmatic guilt.

Proceeds from the 10th Anniversary manifestation of Project Nunway is going into the Sisters General Fund, darlings. That serves our bi-annual grant cycle by which we help fund the work of community activists and organizations serving those most in need.
