Digital Adventures with Sunday Parkways & the IPRC!

This workshop is part of  Portland Sunday Parkways schedule of Digital Adventures as a part of their “Choose Your Own Portland Adventure” summer programming. The IPRC is excited to partner with them for 6 months of free & by-donation workshops that center around the theme of love and resilience. Join us for a series of virtual programs that explore our relationships with the places, communities, and people we love, and how a variety of different creative practices can help us develop strength & self-love, and have fun making!

The 6 months will culminate in making a community zine! Each workshop will include inspiration to get you started, but whether you join us for them or not, we invite you to submit a zine page at any time during the project by emailing a digital copy to eao@iprc.org or mailing your work to 318 SE Main Street, Suite 155 Portland, OR 97214** The final submission deadline is September 30th, 2021. All participants will receive a digital and/or physical copy of the zine and will be invited to an online launch event in October. **
