8:00 AM Gateway Conversations Bus Tour In 1994, Pacific Rim Park (PRP) and Ilan-Lael Foundation (ILF), under the artistic direction of artist James Hubbell, launched a global conversation between San Diego and Pacific Rim nations exploring the transformative power of art and the artistic process. Hubbell's unique expression of art diplomacy resulted in public art parks built by architecture students in seven Pacific Rim cities. Through these shared art-making experiences, the diverse people and nations of the Pacific transcended language barriers and cultural differences to explore and celebrate their common humanity.

Pacific Rim Park and Ilan-Lael Foundation will bring the participants of the Pacific Rim Park project to San Diego to continue exploring the role of art in international relations. The 2017 Gateway Conversations will welcome representatives from the eastern and western Pacific Rims along with members from San Diego and Tijuana to continue the conversation about the role of art in public places and its ability to bridge cultures.

11:00 AM Keyip! Kechuw! Reading Program The Barona Cultural Center & Museum invites San Diego youngsters to participate in its second annual Keyip! Kechuw! (Listen! Make!), a free monthly story time and craft program designed to inspire young children to read.

This year, the Barona Cultural Center & Museum is partnering with the Lakeside Library to make these events accessible to even more children who are eager to learn. The program will be held at the Lakeside Library generally on the last Saturday of each month from 11 a.m. to 12:00 PM starting April 29, 2017 through Nov. 18, 2017.

This program is geared toward children in grades K-2 and will feature a unique cultural story, then a hands-on craft activity. There will be a monthly raffle drawing as well as a perfect attendance prize for children who participate in the entire Keyip! Kechuw! series.

"After a successful launch of this fun reading program last year, we are excited to partner with the Lakeside Library for Keyip! Kechuw! this year," said Laurie Egan-Hedley, director and curator of the Barona Cultural Center & Museum. "What better place to excite children about the joy of reading than in the library. Our goal is to teach children about Native American culture while helping them to understand the importance of reading and storytelling."

The program will launch on Saturday, April 29, 2017 with the story How Jackrabbit Got His Very Long Ears, a southwestern story that follows the trials and tribulations of Jackrabbit when he doesn't listen to Great Spirits' instructions.

It is a teaching tale about the importance of listening carefully, respecting differences and treating others kindly. Children will have the opportunity to make their very own Zuni fetish necklace and desert animal puppets to take home.

To reserve a spot for the following Keyip! Kechuw! events, call the Barona Cultural Center & Museum at 619-443-7003, ext. 219. For more information, visit the Barona Cultural Center & Museum online.
