Gamanfest: Reclaiming Identity Through Art and Activism

May 12, 2018 | 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. | PCC Cascade Campus

705 N. Killingsworth St., Portland OR 97217

Inspired by the spirit of gaman—"perseverance" or "endurance"—and those Japanese Americans who were unjustly incarcerated in government camps during World War II, this festival serves as a venue for artists and activists within the Asian American community who use their heritage and culture as motivation for the work they create. 

The second day of the festival features performances by Nobuko Miyamoto, No-No Boy, and The Slants. Read more.

This program is made possible in part by a Public Program Grant from Oregon Humanities.
