Portland Perspectives on Global Issues

As many of you know, this summer I have been working with the Northwest Institute for Social Change. Tomorrow evening is our final event and we will be screening the radio and film documentaries that our fellows have worked so hard to create this summer. Details of the event are as follows! Please spread the word, and I hope to see you tomorrow evening!

This summer, nine students from around the country brought their creative forces to Portland to learn about media and social change. In six weeks, the fellows produced five radio documentaries and three short films highlighting Portland solutions to global issues. The Northwest Institute for Social Change's Summer Documentary Fellows are proud to invite you to our showcase event.

Portland Perspectives on Global Issues: Final Documentary Project Exhibition

Please join us for a viewing of our films about backyard chicken coops in the city, the Children's Healing Art Project (CHAP), and a youth employment program between Urban Opportunities and Voodoo Doughnut.
