We’re proud to announce that we’ve had a successful summer of programming, bringing together hundreds of Portlanders and visitors to learn more about our region, its history, and its culture. We still have two more tours available as part of our summer schedule, PDX 101 on September 23rd and the Hidden History of Albina on September 24th. Know Your City public tours will be on hiatus for the month of October (but we’ll have other programs for you to enjoy!). You can still schedule private group tours by emailing email@example.com and we’ll be announcing our Fall/Winter public tours schedule near the beginning of November.
Last Friday, Know Your City launched our 14 week curriculum at Boise-Eliot Humboldt School, working with over thirty youth of color to produce a community newspaper as part of Youth Print PDX. This program, made possible by Northeast Coalition of Neighborhoods, is an exciting opportunity to give youth in North and Northeast Portland a stronger civic voice about what’s happening in their communities.
Help us support the work of creatives of color! Know Your City and local business With Love from PDX is partnering to bring you the Portland Urban Market on October 13th. Portland Urban Market is an all ages and FREE event with dozens of vendors showcasing food, culture, music, retail, drinks, and art from creatives and makers of color in Oregon. RSVP and share with your friends!
