See Me. iAm. HEAR: A Creative Activation of Youth Voices of Color

July 31, 2021 @ 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Portland Art Museum outdoor courtyard and Madison Street Plaza

Free and open to the public. All ages welcome.

The Portland Art Museum is collaborating with the City of Portland’s “Supporting Community Healing with Art” initiative and many partners to transform the Madison Plaza into a vibrant creative space activated by and for youth. We are honored to center the ways in which community healing can be realized when youth are empowered to lead, create, dream, and express themselves through their artistic expressions. Poetry, open mic, print-making, journaling, art-installations, DJ workshops, free ice cream, and more! Join us to celebrate our youth in their artistry, resilience, and power. Featured partners include: The Numberz.fmI AM M.O.R.E.IPRC, and NAYA Many Nations Academy.

Sign language interpreters will be present.

Heat advisory: This event space is shaded and there is a cooling room available for individuals who overheat. However, if temperatures pass 100 degrees, we may need to close early.
