Assembly 2019 - Art + Social Practice Gathering - Day 2

Assembly 2019 will take place May 3rd, 4th, and 5th in Portland, Oregon and is free and open to the public.
Join us in shaping the collective experience at Assembly, a weekend of free, thought-provoking events that include discussions, physical activities, participatory projects, meals and workshops. This 6th edition of Assembly will explore social issues, power, migration, recreation and memory in Portland’s most diverse neighborhood, where communities grapple with development plans while cultivating spaces to thrive. This three-day program of activities will take place at Mt. Scott Community Center and venues around the Jade District & 82nd Ave Corridor.

Members of the PSU Art and Social Practice MFA program organize Assembly every year to showcase current work and collaborations with members of the local community. Attend one or all of the events.
