This is your chance to contribute to the next edition of Our Portland Story! We will have a recording station set up for anyone who wants to schedule a quick 5 minute oral recording session. You can bring a friend or family member to conduct an interview, or simply record an oral story on your own. Stories should be concise and focus on one aspect of Portland that has meaning to you (a historical event, inspiring person, or perfect place). Stories chosen for Our Portland Story Volume 3 will be transcribed and an editor may follow up with further requests. You must SCHEDULE an appointment ahead of time to ensure that you will be able to participate!
This event is the LAST in the Our Portland Story Summer Expo series – a celebration of community storytelling. View full line up of past events!
Still on view:
Peer into the depths of The Cabinet of Curiosity exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Craft which features wild, weird and familiar objects pulled straight from the pages of Volumes 1 &2. Discover old Portland concert posters, historical artifacts and cultural oddities! All objects are mapped and reference page numbers so you can dive deeper into the stories behind all of the objects.
On Location, the new addition to the Our Portland Story exhibition, opened on August 31st featuring a large-scale Portland map populated with flags representing important places referenced in Our Portland Story Volumes 1 & 2. The map is interactive and will be awaiting your location-based Portland story.
The buildings, parks, bridges, scenic areas, restaurants and public squares are the backdrop of ALL of our Portland stories. What story will you write? Add yours and you will be contributing to the growth of the exhibit which will be live (and allowing contributions) at Museum of Contemporary Craft until September 16th.
Huge thanks to Joan Lundell for design and planning support, and to Sarah Margolis-Pineo for her work & support of the Expo!
