Project Location:

Portland, OR


Project Description:

We All Rise supported the organization of “Artist Free,” an event geared toward giving back to Portland’s Black Youth. This event featured free haircuts from Damian Lillard’s personal barber, painting by five local Black artists, live music by DJ MoB, free art supplies sponsored by BLICK, and free food provided by Carl’s Jr. Damian Lillard also made an appearance at the event. We All Rise, especially considering our own roots in Portland, is always seeking opportunities to empower the local Black community. It is important for Black youth to see Black Portlanders leading and making a difference through creative expression.
