On August 17th from noon till 5 pm we hope thousands will join Granny D and aerial-art-activist, Daniel Dancer for great music culminating in the formation by participants as "paint drops" of a "living painting" of a peace dove bearing a rose. Choreographed to the participator music of Shantala, a special photo will be taken from the sky.

The Portland Dove In:
A Benefit Concert and Art Happening For Peace

"We are standing for life in a time when the forces of death defy us to take our stand. So we stand. Bring your force and come and stand with us at the Dove In. We need you! "
-Love from Granny D.

Come One, Come All -- Stand with Granny D in this wonderful community creation of a huge "living painting" of peace dove bearing a rose. Each person will be a "human paintdrop," choreographed to the participatory music of Shantala. A special photo from the sky will be taken by aerial-art-activist, Daniel Dancer. Bring your open hearts and your generosity of spirit as we stand together to joyfully and artistically support this movement that we all believe in. Bring flowers to line the stage and perhaps something to share in the park.

Noon till 4pm
Tom McCall Waterfront Park, South

Music: Sky in the Road, SweetJuice & Shantala
