November at the IPRC

« You Are Not Alone » screenprint by Jillian Barthold
This past week, in the aftermath of the election, we have been reminded of how powerful community is, and how important expression and print media are. We’ve seen members gather together to support one another and to organize; to photocopy fliers and make banners to carry at protests; to screenprint positive messages to be distributed in the community and to make letterpress prints for local businesses to display in solidarity— in solidarity with POC, with women, with the LGBTQ community, and with all marginalized people whose safety and well-being is most vulnerable in this country.
Now more than ever it is important to come together as an intersectional arts community, to learn from one another and to amplify one another’s voices. We will continue to strive to be a safe and inclusive space, one that values, celebrates and listens to all genders, races, orientations, religions, languages and cultures.
When we see the high schoolers of Portland Public Schools protesting peacefully, and when we see youth holding up signs denouncing the Dakota Access Pipeline or the racist rhetoric of the president elect, we’re inspired to work harder to make the IPRC the resource center that those generations continue to use in the future.
G G Main Badge
With all the uncertainty we are facing as a country in the next few years, it is essential that the IPRC be able to continue to provide the outreach engagement and community programming that we have been providing to the greater Portland area for the last 19 years.
The IPRC provides resources and support for people from all walks of life, we don’t turn anyone away. We work with a diverse demographic including incarcerated people, homeless folks, at risk and house less youth, vulnerable adults and LGBTQ community members to name just a few. Last year alone the IPRC provided resources to over 6,700 people just through our outreach program and that doesn’t even count the people who utilize our space as members and visitors.
That is why it is essential that we have your support this year through the Give!Guide. We are moving into a new space that is more centrally located and larger than our current location and we’re thrilled to be able to offer more to our community. However, we are also facing a 100% rent increase and we need the continued support of our community to successfully make this transition. Please give HERE. We appreciate your support and we are here for you in return. Thank you.

Special thanks to IPRC volunteers Tony Marostica, Ryan Brewer, Rubina Martini, Rainey Warren, Mel Favara, Ramona and John Akira Harrold who helped hundreds of 2016 Wordstock Festival goers pull a special edition print designed by Studio Manager Caitlin Harris for the occasion.
