The Vanport Mosaic Festival 2017 VANPORT EDUCATION WORKSHOP

Educators will learn multidisciplinary tools and opportunities for curriculum development for use in teaching about Vanport, Oregon. This year’s themes of home, housing migration, and displacement are central to the workshop and lesson design. Embedded in these workshops is the question of how unresolved issues with race-based displacement reverberate through future generations.

When: Saturday, May 27, 2017 from 11:30 am to 3pm

This event is part of The Vanport Mosaic Festival 2017, a four-day exploration of the history and legacy of Vanport, Oregon’s second largest city wiped out by a flood in 1948. Through theater, documentaries, historic exhibit, lectures, and tours we honor the experience of those who lived there.
