Event description

Description

A bike tour in Northeast Portland with oral history performances—with Gentrification is Weird/Ignorant Reflections, Living Stages, and Laquida Landford.

The bike ride traces the history of the community of Vanport and the experiences of displacement of its residents. The ride culminates in a theatrical forum facilitated by Living Stages and presented by community performers who face gentrification or displacement. Audience members are invited to participate in a creative, theatrical community brainstorm on what might be possible.

Bring your own bike or borrow one on site, made available by the Community Cycling Center!

Check in/registration starts at 12.30pm at Expo Center.

This event is part of the Vanport Mosaic Festival 2017, a four-day exploration of the history and legacy of Vanport, Oregon’s second largest city wiped out by a flood in 1948. Through theater, documentaries, historic exhibit, lectures, and tours we honor the experience of those who lived there.
