Description

We want to explore and document what it's like growing up in Portland and living in East Portland communities, and to capture our families' experiences of displacement and resilience. This project will challenge the notions people have of Portland and of young people of color. We are interested in flipping the narrative and empowering young people of color, as well as creating a safe space in our community to celebrate our diverse identities.

Come and celebrate our hard work on this project! We want to build community with YOU!

Free food. Free admission. Good vibes.

In addition to the photo essay collection, there will be amazing performances by youth and the community!

This event is made possible through the Jade Midway Placemaking Grant!
