Conversation Project: What Is Cultural Appropriation?

April 26, 2018 | 6:00 p.m. | Friendly House

1737 NW 26th Ave., Portland OR 97210

Issues of cultural appropriation and identity are complicated. Power dynamics influence who benefits from certain cultural experience, and—given the global nature of our world—parts of our individual and cultural identities are shaped by cultures other than our own. How do we make sense of this and what effect does it have on us as individuals and as Oregonians?

This event will take place in the Crawford Building at Friendly House.
