Equity and Inclusion Update September 2021

In our continuing effort to increase communication and transparency around equity and inclusion work at the Portland Art Museum and Northwest Film Center, this update from the Equity Team (covering summer 2021) recounts initiatives, partnerships, programs, and exhibitions that are moving our racial equity work forward. Our hope remains, that by sharing honestly and openly, we can continue to be held accountable to our goal of racial equity. Previous equity and inclusion updates can be found here: January 2021 | May 2021.

Below is a snapshot of recent projects and initiatives that highlight the ongoing equity work being done at this time.
