The town of Sisters is warming up for the 12th annual My Own Two Hands event April 12–13. The two-day event is a community celebration of the arts and a fundraiser for the Sisters Americana Project.
“Once people see what classes like these do for the kids, they realize how important they are to maintain,” said Sisters Folk Festival Development Director Katy Yoder. With funding for schools hit hard by state and federal budget cuts, the Sisters Folk Festival has stepped up its efforts to keep the arts alive in Sisters schools.
For the past 12 years, My Own Two Hands has celebrated the artistic contributions of the individual — in writing as well as visual and performing arts — to the community.
