In 2017 St Johns Center for Opportunity helped to connect 83 artists with the North Portland communities by planning and organizing quarterly arts events. The St. Johns ArtBurst is a series of arts engagement events connecting local artists and North Portland neighborhoods. North Portland, the “Peninsula”, and St. Johns in particular, is home to talented artists and a burgeoning art scene, and it’s time to celebrate the creative spirit of the neighborhood! With these quarterly events, we hope to
1.) increase access to and appreciation of the arts; 2.) support and strengthen the artist community in St. Johns and North Portland; 3.) engage the St. Johns business community; 4.) celebrate the diverse cultural communities in North Portland and; 5.) build community by facilitating conversations and connections. If you’re interested in getting involved to coordinate art events during these weekends, contact email@example.com.
We are continuing our programming into 2018 with our first Friday’s Art Walk on March 2 where we will pair an artist (or multiple artists depending on venue size) with selected St. Johns businesses to serve as mini-galleries and we’re looking for artists!
Who we’re looking for:
Local artists (St. Johns/North Portland preferable, Portland generally)
St Johns on Portland, OR
