So Much Together - The People’s Park: Reclaiming Spaces for Our Communities

Lauren Everett is a Portland-based artist, community activist, and researcher. In 2020, Lauren led the creation of the People’s Park, a temporary community space created on a vacant lot in the St. Johns neighborhood. In this two-part workshop, she will share the story of how the park came about, framed by a discussion about the ideology of property in the United States.

So Much Together: Shared Possessions

Patricia Vázquez Gómez is an artist whose practice investigates the social functions of art, the intersections between aesthetics, ethics, and politics, and the expansion of community-based art practices. She strongly believes that we all possess unique talents, knowledge, and perspectives that make us unique and unordinary, and that those special possessions are often obscured by the situations in which we find ourselves. In this workshop, Patricia will share some of her projects and guide conversations and quick activities to connect to the themes and methods of her artwork. We will learn about the unique cultural possessions that each participant brings in the form of sayings inherited from families and cultures and make a set of posters featuring those sayings.
