Did you live in the Albina Neighborhood between 1940 and 1980?

The Vanport Mosaic would love to record your memories and digitize your photos for the new chapter of our on-going oral history project.  During the VANPORT MOSAIC FESTIVAL 2017, our volunteers will conduct interviews inside Stream PDX, a mobile recording studio in a '67 Airstream trailer:

May 26, 2-6 pm - near Interstate Firehouse Cultural Center
May 27, 2-6 pm - near Vancouver Ave First Baptist Church
May 28, 1-6 pm -  near Interstate Firehouse Cultural Center

To set a time slot to record, please call 510-717.2441, or email laura@vanportmosaic.org.

Or stop by when you see Stream PDX Airstream!

We'd love to scan and digitize photos and artifacts for history preservation. Please bring anything you'd like, and our volunteers will scan them in front of you and return them immediately.

In collaboration with University of Oregon School of Journalism and Communication’s Agora Journalism Center, University of Oregon Historic Preservation Program, Open Signal Portland Community Media, Stream PDX. Made possible by a generous support of University of Oregon School of Journalism and Communication and RAAC.


This event is part of THE VANPORT MOSAIC FESTIVAL 2017- MAY 26-29, a four-day exploration of the history and legacy of Vanport, Oregon’s second largest city wiped out by a flood in 1948. Through theater, documentaries, historic exhibit, lectures, and tours we honor the experience of those who lived there. Full program at www.vanportmosaic.org.
