Tour begins at 235 Northwest Park Avenue, Portland

Take a memory-activism walk on the North Park Blocks, and immerse yourself in Oregon’s silenced histories, as told by underrepresented and historically marginalized communities. Vanport Mosaic, in collaboration with Design as Protest collective and a number of groups, individuals, and cultural institutions, is activating a series of vacant storefront windows with history displays that celebrate communities’ strength and inspire us to join in solidarity and action. Tour facilitated by Allan Lazo of the Fair Housing Council of Oregon. View more information on this exhibition.

Presented by Vanport Mosaic and partners.
