We’re excited about our next Feed The Body, Feed The Soul event in conjunction with Oshkosh Corporation! Join us May 31st at the Menominee Nation Arena in Oshkosh for Cory Chisel and friends
as they salute Tom Petty. Please note that the show start time is 7:00pm and doors open at 6:00pm.

Proceeds from the event go toward Feed The Body, Feed The Soul as well as Refuge Foundation for the Arts. This means you can enjoy live music while assisting with basic needs like organic and sustainably sourced food, shelter, skills for a sustainable future, and access to the arts.

Proceeds from the past Feed The Body, Feed The Soul event allowed us to purchase enough rice to help 35,000 families in our community. Our rice packaging event at Feeding America had over 1,000 volunteers who helped pack 202,000 pounds of rice to help feed families in Northeast Wisconsin.

For those of you who have already purchased a ticket at full price, your contribution is greatly appreciated. However, if you choose to be refunded the difference you can contact the Menominee Nation Arena at (920) 774-2039. Purchase tickets here.

Upcoming Events: Homeland Experience

Join Refuge Foundation for the Arts on September 21 & 22 in Green Bay’s beautiful On Broadway district for the 2nd annual Homeland Experience presented by our friends at Fox Communities Credit Union. Featuring musicians and visual artists from around the globe, Homeland Experience will showcase everything Green Bay has to offer. The event will be a celebration of art, community, and possibility; and it will be a place to embrace what connects us all.

Other dates to mark on your calendars are June 24th and July 29th. These will be held in Houdini Plaza, but stay tuned for details next week!

On April 22nd, we celebrated the 3 year anniversary of co-founders Cory Chisel and Adriel Denae’s first arrival to our property. About three years ago, a Post Crescent article was written about their plans for the property and foundation. We love looking back as a reminder of where we started, and are so thankful for the success of these plans that turned Refuge Foundation for the Arts into what it is today.
