Dear Fellow Archivists,
On behalf of the Portland Alliance for Response, you are cordially invited to an open house event on Monday, May 20th at 6:00pm to learn more about collaborative disaster preparedness efforts in the Portland Metro area.
According to a 2018 study, Oregon non-profits exhibited low levels of disaster preparedness. The Portland Alliance for Response (PAR) is a network of cultural institutions and emergency managers that aim to safeguard arts and cultural resources through effective communication and coordination of disaster preparedness and emergency response efforts. Thanks to a Performing Arts Readiness grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, we’re ready to expand our network and are reaching out to local arts and culture organizations, including archives, museums, and libraries. We hope you’ll join us!
Immediately following the open house, attendees will also receive two complimentary tickets to attend the Monday evening Oregon Symphony performance featuring vocalist Storm Large performing Weill’s Seven Deadly Sins.
WHO: For Leaders or representatives of local arts organizations, archives, museums, and libraries
