Division Midway Alliance’s President Lorelei Young is compiling a list of artists who live or work in East Portland. Opportunities to hire artists for community projects arise but seldom get response from East Portland artists.

The list will be shared with neighborhood associations, festival coordinators and agencies that have commissions or funding for art projects.

East Portland offers many venues such as parks for performing artists. Our area also hosts local celebrations that seek local artists. Grants are available for local artists.

The East Portland Artists List information will not be sold, although it will be shared with other agencies that agree to share their lists, too. Artists on the list will receive a copy.

If you are interested in being a part of the East Portland Artists’ List, contact Lorelei Young at loreleiportland@gmail.
