The Learning and Community Partnerships team at the Portland Art Museum and Northwest Film Center works to offer a full spectrum of programs and outreach initiatives that promote lifelong learning and build connections to our local community. Through programs, partnerships, and community advisory processes, the Museum strives to be more than just a collection of objects and artwork, but also to be a place where conversations about the world around us take place.

Have Conversations Here

We encourage visitors to use the Museum as a space for dialogue and reflection, while always remaining respectful of all visitors. Explore together, look closely, and find a place within the Museum to sit and talk about what you see and experience. This Conversation Guide includes a few suggestions to spark thinking and conversation before, during, and after your visit to the Museum.
