    U.S. Department of Arts and Culture Cultural Organizing - Oregon Style


    The U.S. Department of Arts and Culture (USDAC) is a people-powered department and action network, inciting creativity and social imagination to shape a culture of empathy, equity, and belonging. In this 3 hour gathering, you will meet other local organizers, community members, and citizen artists through games and co-created conversations that exemplify the USDAC’s organizing tools. You will walk away with a deeper local network, some organizing/art making/facilitation tools, and a connection to a national network of people planting seeds for collective imagination!

    Local Organizers include: Candace Kita, Asian Pacific American Network of Oregon; Charlene Martinez, Oregon State University ...more to be announced

    The APANO/Jade Multicultural Space is a community space, serving Jade District residents with neighborhood events, activities, and meetings.

    The U.S. Department of Arts and Culture is not a government agency, but an act of collective imagination fueled by all who believe that art and culture are among our most powerful and under-tapped resources for creating a more just, equitable, and vibrant world.

    Eastside 'Just Us' Stories - East Portland Photo Exhibit

    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!

    OPAL Environmental Justice Oregon - OPAL is a community organizing & advocacy organization working with low-income & communities of color to educate, engage & empower.
