Event Description

Celebrate the positive things happening in community! 


Community Outreach of Our United Villages invites you to the seventh presentation of Sharing Ideas on Thursday, July 26th at Tabor Space (5441 SE Belmont) from 6:00 – 8:00 PM.  Sharing Ideas showcases the positive efforts of neighbors, groups and organizations throughout Portland. 

This presentation will focus on arts, music and culture as a tool for building community.  Three projects have been invited to share the spark that ignited their idea, the tools and strategies used to turn their ideas into action and their hopes for the future of their project. Featured projects include:

  • The Morpheus Youth Project uses arts and humanities education to create a safe space for incarcerated and formerly incarcerated youth. 
  • Boise Voices is a creative collaboration between youth and elders in Northeast Portland to record the stories of how the Boise neighborhood has changed over time.
  • The Art of Reconciliation invites the power of art to heal our communities and creates opportunities for people to view the creativity of those who are different from them, as a way to build relationships and increase appreciation for diversity.

Make connections, build support for positive efforts in the community and discover possibilities for creating similar projects in your neighborhood. 

 

Register to attend online or call 503.546.7499.  FREE and open to the community.  Food provided.  Child care (9 and under), transportation, and interpretation provided upon request.
