Funding Our Own Liberation – POC Fundraising Workshop
We know how crucial it is to build collective power, raise money, and leverage those funds into our own communities. We also know there are many systemic barriers to economic access for people of color. Whether you’re new to fundraising, experienced but need a reboot or refresher, or are in the middle of a fundraising campaign right now, this workshop will be a great way to dig into those issues with other people of color.
Join us for Funding Our Own Liberation, a Grassroots Fundraising Workshop for People of Color in Portland. Together, we’ll strengthen our skills as storytellers, fundraisers and agents for change within our community. (Registration is full.)
RACC 2018 Workshops
ART & POWER: CREATIVE HEALING
If you are looking for signs of resiliency, look no further than the art-making of communities of color. People of color have long used artistic practices to heal from micro and macro level impacts of systemic oppression. Healing through art is an ever-evolving practice that has shifted and molded to build community, make sense out of pain, challenge dominant power structures, and re-envision our collective futures.
In the third iteration of the Art & Power series we explore the power of art and creative expression as tools for healing, survival and empowerment. Come listen, engage, and learn from three Portland-based artists of color: painter Sadé Beasley, poet leo ariel, and multidisciplinary artist Bobby Fouther, as they discuss and share ways that they have used art to heal themselves and their communities.
This event is a collaboration between RACC and Art Saved My Life (YGB, Deep Underground, Friends of Noise and Gentrification is WEIRD!) in an effort to create space for communities of color to come together for conversations and collective healing. Everyone is welcome but space is limited. We ask you to be mindful of that when reserving your ticket(s). Please contact Humberto Marquez Mendez if you have any questions or need accommodations to fully participate in this program.
Free. Reserve your spot here!
