Bridges Debuts on Saturday, October 26th
Bridges is Portland Story Theater's new series modeled after our
popular Urban Tellers but with a focus on social justice. This first season, the theme is race relations. Bridges will bring together people from different racial, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds to share their personal narratives, closing the gap between "us" and "them.” And we've invited a terrific group of people to participate in our first event of the series:
Phillip Hillaire is a member of the Lummi Tribe and serves on the Board of Directors for the Regional Art & Cultural Council. He is involved in protecting tribal sovereignty, cultures, arts and traditions.
Judith Mowry is a Policy Analyst focusing on Equity Strategies and Initiatives at the city of Portland’s Office of Equity and Human Rights. She is the co-founder of the Restorative Justice Project on Gentrification and partnered in developing the Community Residential Siting Program for the City of Portland.
Donna Kelly is a facilitator at Race Talks, and a self-described Albina Elder. She has presented various talks, including “Growing Up Multi-Racial in Oregon.”
Jeri Williams is the Neighborhood Program Coordinator for the Office of Neighborhood Involvement. She oversees the Diversity and Civic Leadership Advisory Committee, which provides ongoing review and advice for ONI programs related to diversity outreach and engagement to underrepresented communities.
Willie Welch is a local artist who specializes in paper sculpture. He grew up in a Los Angeles neighbourhood troubled by gangs and violence, which he escaped by immersing himself in creativity. He was a part of the Gentrification Listening Project that Judith Mowry led.
