Portland Filmmaking Meetup | Shooting Food

Portland Filmmaking Meetup | Shooting Food

The Portland Filmmaking meetup is a community of local film professionals that draw inspiration, collaboration and education from each other.

This is an event you won't want to miss! Join us for a great time with fellow PDX filmmakers and discussion on working with food with Michael Shay (co-founder of https://polarastudio.com/).

From their site:
"The first thing you should know about Polara Studio co-founder Michael is that he’s a published poet. What does this have to do with taking pictures, you ask? Everything. Imagine Walt Whitman with a Nikon in his hands. An image-maker, not an image-taker, it’s estimated Michael has taken over a million photographs and can make a glob of Crunchy Jif on a Saltine look like something Thomas Keller would overcharge for at The French Laundry. It’s downright spooky."

Rough Agenda:
6:30pm - 7:15pm | Socialize + Mingle
7:15pm - 7:20pm | Welcome + Announcements
7:20pm - 8pm | Discussion + Q&A
8pm - 8:30pm | Wrap Up + Exit

Join us for an evening of creative exploration in abstract painting! I'll give you the tools to make an original piece of art, and walk you through ways to develop your own creative practice.

Who is Megan? I'm a visual artist, writer, and cancer survivor living and working in Portland, Oregon, using bold and dramatic color and texture in my work to give form to feeling, capturing deep and resonate emotion and energy, exploring themes of creative identity and healing. I wrote a hand-painted poetry zine “Running Away from Home," that's carried at Powell’s Books and shown art most recently in a solo show at The Good Mod (a custom mid-century modern furniture house), at Blanc Space in Portland as part of a multi-disciplinary show on identity, and as a performer at the Future Prairie Queer Variety Show. I write about women artists around the world on Art Baby. Find out more on my website and follow me on Instagram!

Get It, Together: Listening Sessions With Women on Racial Equity and Partnership

Get It, Together: Listening Sessions With Women on Racial Equity and Partnership

Women can and do change the world. And today’s geopolitical climate has activated and enlivened powerful and hard conversations that matter between and across all dimensions of difference.

As a white woman and a woman of color, we at Moementum seek to understand more about partnership and problems between women like us at work. While there have been improvements in the status of women globally, we still have a very long way to go, and white women have benefited disproportionately from the women’s rights movement of the last 150 years. Racial tensions are out there, and white fragility is real, and we have work to do.

Eventually, and as a result of these listening sessions, we envision a new workshop and conversation between white women and women of color that tangibly provides tools and skills for finally elevating all of us together. We want to Get It (Together) in the truest sense. We want to get into real partnership. We want to get honest. We want to get real. We want to get through the dark middle. We want to get enlivened. We want to get healed. We want to get equity. We want to get each other. We want to get messy. We want to get the hand we also want to give.

But before we want to offer solutions, we want to listen. Hard. Deep. Fast. With curioisity and to understand. So, while we are on the Bravespace Tour, we are hosting structured dialogue sessions for white women and women of color to explore how we work together and where we don’t; what gets in the way; where it hurts; where it works.

These 3-hour sessions will be structured and facilitated with approriate boundaries for safety even as they invite courage. We won’t be offering solutions or ideas or tips or tools or anything tangible to take away. We expect to end them with more questions than answers. We agree to tolerate the ambiguity and confusion we may open up.

We promise that every woman who attends will be named and credited as helping shape our work (if you choose) and you will the absolute first to be invited to any next steps or programming we develop.

Join us. Let’s talk, listen, and get it. Together.
