In times like these, it is important for people to relate to and interact with one another and with their community in ways that are healthy and fun.
It is increasingly important for our actions to affect one another and the spaces we inhabit in positive ways.
When music, dance, food, and performance are a part of our interactions, creative expression is encouraged, moods are elevated, relationships are strengthened, and community bonds are formed.
Social Impact Jam is an event series held in rotating public locations throughout Portland. Participants work to improve public spaces while guest DJs play music and guest artists paint portraits.
