2018 Heart Mountain Pilgrimage
Open Registration has begun! Against the backdrop of a special exhibit featuring the compelling incarceration artwork of Estelle Ishigo, this summer's event promises to be stimulating, meaningful, and visually stunning! We have a jam-packed weekend planned for you all, so scroll down to find out more details about the sessions, activities, films, and scheduling of the 2018 Heart Mountain Pilgrimage.
These optional activities are first come, first serve and are not guaranteed to be available for every attendee. You can view/download the full descriptions here (will open in new tab/window) or we also recently sent out a physical registration form in the mail with descriptions.
Online registration for the Seventh Annual Pilgrimage is open April 1 through June 30.
For those who would prefer to register by mail, we happily accept postal registration as an alternative to online registration. Please note however that these forms must be postmarked by June 15th.
