Our Sons Project

PassinArt: A Theatre Company broke new ground this season, expanding its artistic offerings to a three-part “Art Impacting Community” series called “Our Sons.”

Events included a powerful, nationally recognized art exhibit, “Kin Killin Kin” by Ohio artist, James Pate; The Gospel of Lovingkindness, a drama by Marcus Gardley; and dialogues that will be held in conjunction with community partners.

Youth and gun violence has taken a tremendous toll on many of our communities, especially in low income neighborhoods and communities of color. This is true throughout the country, and Portland is no different. LETS TALK ABOUT IT!

The follow-up dialogue is sponsored and facilitated by Portland Parent Union (PPU) as part of PassinArt’s series “Our Sons Project."

This is a FREE event and no reservations are needed. Simply attend and participate if you'd like!

Where:   Concordia University Hagen Campus Center NE 27th and Holman

When:    Saturday, June 24, 2017, 4:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.

Contact:  503-880-9145, 971-255-1347
