Designers Taking Action
Center for Architecture

Design has an extensive impact on how social movements are activated. Designers are engaging in campaigns and social issues at increasing levels, and non-designers are learning and implementing design practices for a more effective movement. Design is employed to shape activism, including everything from establishing a voice and brand, to empathizing with an audience and rapidly prototyping to maximize your impact.

Kicking off this monthly event will be speaker Natalie Sundeleaf Sept, who has found her passion at the intersection of activism, engagement, art, and design.

Natalie will discuss how designers, makers, and artists react to times of change through both resistance and forward thinking. Natalie calls herself a meeter and a maker, and turned her energy into activism when she worked on Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Taking place at the Center for Architecture the morning of May 5th, this presenter will help convey to attendees the power of design in social activism. Complete with breakfast and coffee, the kickoff of Design Museum Mornings is not to be missed!


Design Museum Mornings is a monthly event series brought to you by Design Museum Portland. These events are meant to inspire you before your day begins and bring you closer to the Design Museum Portland community. Each event will include a short presentation by a local thought-leader, free breakfast, and great people to wake up with. These events are hosted and sponsored by various generous businesses of the Greater Portland area.

  2. Educating ourselves and each other. Cameron Whitten will offer a hands-on approach to identifying and dismantling racism on a personal and community level, helping participants to develop techniques to actively resist systemic and individual racism.

Meet our speakers: Teresa Floyd, founder of The Bridge Project PDX. She managed to raise three incredible humans in one of the toughest neighborhoods in New Jersey. Teresa is a survivor of domestic violence and rape. In her words, "I am just an average Black woman with sense enough to know changes have to be made through face to face conversations. American white woman are being called out on their complacency."

Gregory McKelvey earned a Political Science degree from Oregon State University and a law degree from Lewis and Clark Law School. He also founded Portland's Resistance which organizes street protests and policy demands. This 24 year-old spokesman has been a key figure in local street activism since 2014.

Chang(e) -- a docudrama about activist Kathy Change

Korea-born, Beaverton-raised, NYC-based performing artist Soomi Kim and co-creator/director Suzi Takahashi examine the life and vision of Philadelphia-based performance artist and activist Kathy Change (formerly Kathleen Chang) in their visually and aurally sumptuous docudrama, the latest in their trilogy of theatre works based on under-recognized Asian American visionaries whose lives were cut short.

Workshop with Penny Arcade: "Speak Truth to Power: Cultural & Political Activism"
PICA, 15 NE Hancock

Workshop with Penny Arcade: “Speak Truth to Power: Cultural & Political Activism.”

When: Tuesday, February 6th from 6-9pm Where: PICA, 15 NE Hancock. REGISTER HERE: https://web.ovationtix.com/trs/pr/986033

"True power comes from knowing the absolute truth ourselves, and that takes ruthless honesty." -- Penny Arcade

In conjunction with her performances of Longing Lasts Longer (Feb 1,2 & 8,9 at PICA), Penny Arcade will offer a workshop for artists of all disciplines and others who are seeking to increase their authenticity and integrity in their life and work. Bring 5-7 minutes of material or create something new onsite through guided writing/devising exercises. Maximum 25 participants. Fee $15.

Penny Arcade is unlike any performer one can meet. She has a career spanning 50 years, and is recognized as one of a handful of artists who created and continue to define performance art as we know it today. A former Warhol superstar and contemporary of Debbie Harry and Patti Smith, Quentin Crisp named Penny Arcade as the woman he most identified with. Her history, lineage and ability as a live performer is simply unsurpassable.

Love Letters to Net Neutral Municipal Broadband
Portland City Hall, 1221 SW 4th

Roses are red, violets are blue, we need net neutrality and public ownership too! Hope you like typewriters, this month's event will feature a lot of them.

We are demanding the city immediately prioritize the development of a municipal broadband network.

Comcast and other large internet service providers have successfully lobbied to repeal net neutrality, sell information about what you do online, and prevent localities from properly regulating them. Municipal broadband is the last line of defense against internet service provider abuses which threaten freedom of information, digital equality, and democracy itself.

Municipal broadband is something many cities such as Tacoma, WA and Sandy, OR already have. In Portland we have been planning to build a municipal broadband network decades, now that our internet freedoms are under attack, it’s an idea whose time has come.

2:00 pm: Event starts
2:15 pm: Speakers
2:50 pm: Letter typing
3:20 pm: The big secret is revealed!
