Portland Free Pantry Mural
Collaborators: Kristin Lash and Emma Weed
This project will incorporate artwork from our underrepresented community members into the community-led build of Portland’s first Mobile Free Pantry. In using the pantry walls as canvases, the organizers specifically aim to provide a platform to at least three different individuals who may identify as low-income, precariously housed or houseless, differently-abled, Black, Indigenous, persons of color, or female or non-binary artists. The project will involve an open call for designs, a community vote, and volunteer painting days. By grounding our project in community-led action and engagement, the organizers hope to build an infrastructure of mutual aid culture within the City of Portland.
