"Joy as Resistance" Fundraiser by PURRR

  • UNA Gallery 328 Northwest Broadway #117 Portland, OR, 97209 United States (map)

PURRR's 2nd quarterly event will celebrate JOY as resistance. Poets, artists, and storytellers will share work on this theme. Afterwards, we will have a DJ spinning records, space for dancing, zine making, poem writing, and hanging out.

Performers include:
Zeloszelos Marchandt
Mindy Netifee
Lara Messersmith-Glavin
Julian Smuggles
Isaiah Spriggs

Event admission $5-10, but individuals are encouraged to bring as much as they can!!! We'll have chapbooks from our first event for sale, along with PURRR t-shirts and buttons! PLUS, UNA Gallery will be hosting a silent auction that very same evening! All funds raised will be donated to UNA Gallery--a space dedicated to showcasing the work of POC, queer, & femme artists--so that they can continue to thrive and offer their space as a community hub. Poets United to Read, Rouse and Resist, a community group of poets and performers dedicated to resisting white supremacy and capitalism, is hosting a fundraiser event in support of UNA Gallery! <3

We love you.
