What’s Going On?
Weird happenings coming up in and around Portland, Oregon
Are you a creative? Weird Portland United is announcing a monthly lecture series and networking event designed to be a unique gathering point for freethinkers in the area. Our goal is to help our members connect with other like-minded artists and creatives interested in exploring their potential.
Once a month we’ll meet to share our collective stories and experiences, show off recent work, celebrate triumphs and connect with local talent. Let’s harness the power of networking, learning and sharing as we help keep Portland weird.
Our inaugural meeting will feature Portland performance artist and writer, Michael James Schneider. His unique charm and wit have been the focus of national headlines over the last several months thanks to his courtship and eventual wedding to his Box Wine Boyfriend. Join us as Michael discusses the creative influence and inspiration behind this project, and how he managed the public interest and media attention that followed.
The public (non-members) are invited to this FREE event taking place April 25th, 5:30 PM. Taborspace (5441 SE Belmont Street) Register here
