As a community organizer, cultural producer, photographer and teacher, Russell Anthony Robles was a critical figure in the advocacy and formation of SOMArts Cultural Center.
Come out and join the Robles family for a day of celebration in commemoration of the late Russell Robles and his contribution and commitment to our community. This celebration of Russell will be a gathering of family, friends, Bay Area artist and community organizers that have produced, gathered and performed at SOMArts and across the Bay Area for decades. The program will include music, art, cultural presentations, Filipino indigenous dance, poetry, visual arts, speakers and a community potluck.
If you are interested in performing for this event, sharing a few words/poem or simply want to contribute to the potluck, please feel free to contact the event hosts (Kimberley Robles, Iraya Robles, Tony Robles and Utopia Hammond) directly on the facebook event page:
