Story Arc Community Screening

Thursday, August 18 at 6:00pm to 8:00pm

Alberta House Theater 5131 NE 23rd Avenue, Portland, OR 97211

The Story Arc Workshop is a biannual video storytelling workshop hosted by the University of Oregon School of Journalism and Communication in Portland. Students in our workshop capture “Making a Difference” stories over the course of five days during June on even numbered years. Due to the pandemic, this is our first workshop since 2018.

We will be screening five short films about Portland organizations and individuals working to make the world around them a better place. Our featured difference makers:

Blackstreet Bakery – Aiming to “restore economic opportunities for Black Portlanders in North and Northeast Portland by providing living wage jobs in plant-based baking.”

Rose Haven – Providing “day shelter, resources, emotional support, and community connections to women, children, and marginalized genders experiencing homelessness and poverty.”

Stronger Skate Park – A safe haven for LGTBQ “people of all ages to engage in action sports and the local community.”

Sarah Bellum Bakery – A social enterprise bakery that supports adults with acquired brain injuries. Brandon Scarth shares his story of resilience.

Alberta House – Buildings are more than just a building; they have the potential to bring community together in vibrant ways. Re-imaging and re-activating the former Cerimon House in Northeast Portland.
