On Friday, August 19, La Bonita NORTH is donating 15% of their sales to Know Your City. Come to 2710 N Killingsworth anytime on the 19th for excellent food and to support an important cause.
Here’s an update on our upcoming specialty tours:
We’re partnering with the Halprin Landscape Conservancy to lead two walking tours of the Historic Halprin Sequence, including parks like as the Ira Keller Fountain, which helped elevate Portland as a city for inviting civic spaces.RSVP for our first tour on August 13th. We are also hosting another Hidden History of Albina tour on the 30th, and another Alberta Arts Tour with Alberta Art Works on August 6th.
This summer, Know Your City has partnered with Roosevelt High School on the Unique Ink project. Unique Ink is a six week program led by KYC Programs Coordinator, Lydia Grijalva, culminating in the production of ten children’s books that reflect the beautiful diversity of the St. John’s community. The youth do writing workshops, Tuesday through Thursday, and we’ve also led tours through Cathedral Park and the Multnomah County Library System. Stay tuned for more updates!
If you’re a writer or illustrator, apply to work on Oregon History Comics, Second Edition! And we have a special opportunity for youth between 12 and 24 called Youth Voices. Apply here!
As a reminder, we expanded the schedule of our recurring walking tours for the Summer. Until the end of September, we are hosting “$10 at 10,” walking tours that start at 10am on Fridays and Sundays beginning from the downtown Voodoo Doughnuts (22 SW 3rd Ave). And for the month of July if you bring two friends who purchase $10 at 10 tickets — we’ll give you a free ticket!
