The 7th Annual Vanport Mosaic Festival

May 20-June 7, 2022

Remember, Repair, Reclaim, and Re-imagine

2022 marks the 80th anniversary of the building of Vanport, once Oregon’s second largest city, and the largest WWII federal housing project in the United States.

At a time when exclusion and racial segregation were the norm, Vanport was a place of belonging.

Eighty years later, at a time when today’s many crises have highlighted our community’s continuing inequities, what can the history and living spirit of Vanport tell us today? Join us for arts performances, screenings, exhibits, tours, dialogues, gatherings and celebrations.
