PRESENTING “AND STILL WE RISE” IN OAK BLUFFS THIS SUMMER!
We are thrilled to announce that the Mariposa, in collaboration with the Women of Color Quilters Network, will present the exhibit “And Still We Rise” – 46 powerful story quilts narrating 400 years of the African American experience – in Oak Bluffs, Martha’s Vineyard this summer!
NEW INTERACTIVE EXHIBIT FOR FAMILIES: “HELLO, DEAR ENEMY!”
“Hello, Dear Enemy! Picture Books for Peace and Humanity” is now open at the Mariposa. Families, this exhibit is our most interactive yet for young children! Click here for a sneak peek at some of the scenes – straight out of children’s literature – where kids can dive in and play, and where kids an adults alike can explore tough themes and discover creative ways to make friends, understand differences, and resolve conflict.
In 2017, under the guidance of international peacemaker Padraig O’Malley, 48 young Muslim men and women from cities across Europe gathered in Glencree, Ireland. Their purpose: To set about collectively charting a course of action to affirm their rights as European citizens, their belief in Islam as a religion of peace, and plans for addressing prejudice and changing perceptions of Muslims across Europe.

2019 SUMMER LIBRARY PROGRAM: “THE STARS OF EGYPT”
Library friends: The Mariposa’s summer library program this year will explore the mysteries of how the constellations connect with the pyramids of Ancient Egypt. We will learn to play a traditional Egyptian game called Achi and decorate game boards for participants to take home.
YOUR SUPPORT MAKES ALL THE DIFFERENCE!
Each year, the Mariposa nurtures curiosity about difference and the world of cultures around us in more than 2,000 school aged children.
For 16 years, we’ve been creating a space where, through the power of arts and personal connection, children can come with classrooms, in home school experiences, and with friends and family to discover, explore… and make a world of difference.
