Join us for this screening of multimedia works produced during the 2014 Vanport Multimedia Project dedicated to collecting and preserving Vanport survivors’ stories. Community members, local historians, artists, media makers and educators collaborated to turn oral history interviews into short and powerful pieces of digital audio and visual narrative.
Immediately following the screening there will be an opportunity for discussion with survivors and producers. Screening sponsored by The Library Foundation, Multnomah County Library, Portland Oregon. NPMTC is a project of The Skanner Foundation.
