Earlier in January on Martin Luther King Day, Know Your City and People’s Food Co-op hosted a dialogue about food justice and its intersection with race and class in Portland, which sold out in less than two weeks. In response to this demand and the critical need for this program, Know Your City and People’s Food Co-op is proud to partner again and present two Food Rights by Bike tours. We will be visiting food justice advocates throughout North Portland on August 27th and September 14th, with free drinks and snacks provided by People’s Co-op. Tell your friends, and get your tickets here!
And look out for our other upcoming specialty tours:
We’ll be hosting another Hidden History of Albina tour on July 30th, and another Alberta Arts Tour with Alberta Art Works on August 6th. We’re partnering with the Halprin Landscape Conservancy on 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.
Unique Ink Update #2: This week, the Unique Ink interns visited University of Oregon’s School of Journalism and Communications and the Pacific Northwest College of Art. At U of O, they met with Dean Dr. Juan-Carlos Molleda, Anthony Whitten (Cameron’s brother), Simone Myers, and Sylvia Hernandez, and Sylvia Hernandez about scholastic journalism, the importance of seizing education and career opportunities, and general admissions and scholarship information. At PNCA, Patrick Forster led us on a facilities tour, including student galleries and printmaking equipment. He spoke about community education programs and college programs at PNCA, and the possibility of pursuing a wide variety of interest areas in the arts at the school. Stay tuned for more updates on the program!

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 10amon 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 10tickets — we’ll give you a free ticket!
