This morning, Nick was proud to host the Regional Arts & Culture Council’s 2014 State of the Arts report at City Hall.
We wish every Council meeting was as inspiring! Members of the Portland Opera performed an aria from Carmen, students from Northeast Portland's King School sang "Oh Freedom," and poetry slam winner Bella Trent read a moving poem.

While the Northeast is still buried in snow, Portland has had one of its warmest winters on record. Take advantage of the sunshine this Saturday, and help clean up the Johnson Creek Watershed in southeast Portland!
Johnson Creek flows from Boring, Oregon through Portland to the Willamette River. It passes through forests, farms, neighborhoods, and more. About 170,000 people live within its 52 square mile watershed, and it’s one of our most important environmental resources.
The Johnson Creek Watershed Council is a local volunteer group dedicated to protecting, restoring, and enhancing the watershed. The Bureau of Environmental Services is proud to partner with the Council on Saturday, March 7, for its annual Watershed Wide event. Join hundreds of fellow volunteers to plant native trees and shrubs, eliminate invasive plants like ivy and blackberry, and learn why this work is so important to keep the watershed healthy!
