The North Portland Multimedia Training Center through its Vanport Oral History Video Contest sought producers to interview Vanport survivors. Dozens of survivors came forward to be interviewed. We acknowledge and appreciate the many individuals in the community that helped with our outreach and continue to help us.
Four Vanport related videos have been produced and are available to view. Several more Vanport interviews have been filmed and are being edited to include in the NPMTC 2014 Oral History project to collect video recorded histories about Vanport, Oregon.
Productions resulting from interviews will be submitted to public access TV, posted on social media and multimedia websites. Venues throughout the city will provide opportunities for Portland communities to view them.
