Tom Lupton's Angels is a photography exhibit inspired by the themes of Rent. As relevant today as it was 26 ago, the story finds us all dealing with a virus confounded by misinformation, civil unrest, and yeah, figuring out how to deal with last year's rent.
Celebrate the July First Thursday with DJ Black Daria and DJ Lapaushi of the Noche Libre DJ collective, spinning music that spans genres and geography from cumbia and quebradita to dancehall and perreo. You can also check out the photography exhibit Angels by Tom Lupton in the PGE gallery.
JAW Lab: Dealing with the Hard Sh*& in Our Writing Lives: Writing Around Trauma, Core Wounds, Violence, and Heartbreaks with JAW Playwright Anya Pearson
Dive into the depths, explore the darkest parts of humanity, and emerge with/forge/create complex characters that feel authentic, alive, and vibrating with energy. Learn the tools, tricks, safeguards, and ripcords we can put in place to make the best possible art — art that changes the world — without costing ourselves too much.
Enjoy live flamenco dance and instrumentation during Espacio Flamenco’s special Tablao Flamenco PCS, where improvisational performances will showcase the dynamic interplay between the music and dance of this multicultural art form.

In this workshop, Maiya will teach the fundamentals of psychological gestures (physical action that reveals intention) as we craft and refine the play within the play.
Enjoy the cool, summertime vibes at JAW with a performance by Portland-based multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Jermaine, lead singer for The Kinky Brothers.
