In these times of collective amnesia, remembering is an act of resistance. For the fourth year, Vanport Mosaic invites you to explore the many silenced histories that surround us, in order to better understand our present and write a new chapter where we all belong.
Join up for two weeks of Memory Activism to explore and confront our local past and recent history of “othering,” and its tragic consequences. Through exhibits, documentary screenings, tours, performances and dialogues, this event will celebrate the lessons of resilience and resistance as defined and told by historically oppressed communities.
This multi-disciplinary event was awarded the Oregon Heritage Excellence Award 2017, the Spirit of Portland Award by City Commissioner Nick Fish and the Columbia Slough Watershed Council’s Achievement Award.
