Assembly 2017 is here!

The PSU Art & Social Practice Program is pleased to host the 4th annual Assembly. This year we have partnered with Creek College, the Oregon Food Bank, the Native American Youth and Family Center, and Martin Luther King Jr. School to plan two and a half days of classes, workshops, presentations, and dance parties.

Assembly will kick-off the weekend on Friday May 19th with a Garden Happy Hour and potluck at the Oregon Food Bank (7900 NE 33rd Dr, Portland, OR 97211). Join us for food, drinks, and a barn dance party. Please RSVP for the potluck to shoshana@shoshanagugenheim.com.

On Saturday, Creek College will host classes throughout the day centered around the Columbia Slough adjacent to the Native American Youth and Family Center (NAYA)(5135 NE Columbia Blvd, Portland, OR 97218). Classes are offered in exchange for environmental restoration along the Slough. Classes are all ages, lunch is provided, and child care is available. Please register for classes here.

Sunday will conclude Assembly at the Martin Luther King Jr. School (4906 NE 6th Ave, Portland, OR 97211). Classes, presentations, and workshops will be offered throughout the day. All events are free, all ages, and open to the public. Lunch is provided and child care is available.
