p:ear Street poem

An interactive art Installation for Portland’s Homeless population

Create alongside p:ear youth at our newest Community Arts Installation, the “p:ear Street Poem.” On June 6th from 5pm – 8pm, you’ll be able to share your inspirations, alongside the words and poems of p:ear youth, Oregon Poet Laureate Kim Stafford, p:ear staff and volunteers, and the many others who support the journeys of our community’s homeless folks. This is a unique experience and fun way to engage your whole family in artistic self-expression and creative social activism.

The interactive “p:ear Street Poem” is coordinated with support from Street Roots and Friends of Noise.
