Joy! Initiative

Oct 17 Been Here, Still Here

cc has

Oral traditions are part of the vibrancy and survival of Black communities. Add music to these stories, and they spread further, faster and truer to the original. By combining these elements in a celebratory event, it signals that AVT is adding a new chapter to the story of Black Portland.

Workshop

cc uppr ewb has

More than 80 Portlanders in total participated in the three-day Orientation Workshops. Participation in the workshops increased steady—nearly doubling with each workshop—as awareness in the community grew.

Nov 21 Hustle Highlight

ewb

Timed just before the holiday season, this event will highlight micro black-owned businesses. It will showcase the cultural impacts that so many of these businesses have made on the community. The result of the event will be to bring these business owners into the economic development and growth conversation for which they may otherwise be overlooked.

Workshop

Dec 17–Dec 21 Programming Workshop

cc

In conjunction with AVT, the Design Team hosted a series of Programming Workshops with the community to invite participation in visualizing what aspects of home and community are important to them. The Workshops were the second in an extensive public engagement process that also includes virtual Joy! events and on-going Community Dialog surveys. As such, the team detailed to the participants the overall planning process; where we have been previously, we are in that process now, and what is to come in the near future.

Workshop

May 06–May 10 From Conceptual to Physical

Join us as we look at three possible scenarios, each of which integrates community defined themes: a sense of belonging, access to nature, wealth built within the Black community, a rich variety of public spaces, and shared social support. 

May 25–May 25 PPS Board Affirming Support for the Albina Vision

uppr

The work of the Albina Vision Trust and the Black community in Portland to reclaim the Albina community is similar to the push for equitable access to public education, especially for Black students and their families. This push has long been a key component of the civil rights movement and fight for racial justice and builds on the legacy of advocacy for Black children in Portland, and catalyzed by the social movements for Black Lives.
