COME JOIN US TO CELEBRATE: After eight successful years of leadership in civic empowerment and creative placemaking, we at Know Your City have a special announcement from our board and two of our staff members, Cameron Whitten and Lydia Grijalva: Cameron is stepping down as Executive Director, and Lydia Grijalva is stepping up as our Interim Executive Director.

Cameron Whitten has served with Know Your City since 2013. First, as a Board Member, then as Board President, and since September 2015, Executive Director. After two years of service, Cameron is leaving his position as Executive Director.

We would like to publically thank Cameron for everything he has done to make KYC what it is today. His leadership has been pivotal in setting the groundwork for us to leverage our impact in Portland.

But don’t worry! He’ll still be around. You can catch Cameron leading the Hidden History of Albina and People’s History of Portland tours, and guest starring in special events. No matter where he goes, Cameron will always be a part of our Know Your City family. Cameron has made sacrifices time and time again to ensure that these important programs were successful. Cameron has given so much to our organization, and we’re so thankful to have had him on staff.

Additionally, we are honored to welcome Lydia as our Interim Director. Already, we see that she is a capable, strategic, and passionate leader who is sure to facilitate continued success for Know Your City. We can’t wait to see what the future brings!

Come join us at the Q Center for a potluck and to celebrate our leaders!

Know Your City engages the public in art and social justice through creative placemaking projects.
