The Wake of Vanport

Friday, August 28, 2015 from 1:30 PM to 4:30 PM

Embassy Suites Portland - Downtown
319 Southwest Pine Street, 2nd Floor
Portland, OR 97204

“The Wake of Vanport” is so named to honor the death of a city and the viewing of its history through the collection of Vanport stories told by the voices of those who lived there. It is also a celebration of life after loss. Vanport is a lost city of Oregon with a rich history for all Oregonians.

Join us for this screening of multimedia works produced during the 2014 Vanport Multimedia Project dedicated to collecting and preserving Vanport survivors’ stories. Community members, local historians, artists, media makers and educators collaborated to turn oral history interviews into short and powerful pieces of digital audio and visual narrative.

Immediately following the screening there will be an opportunity for discussion with survivors and producers. Refreshments will be served. Admission is FREE, but space is limited and reservation is required. Please limit your invites to two people per family.
