Albina Rebuilding Cornerstones: Art & Community Development Roundtable Discussion

This roundtable takes on questions of community development through the lenses of art, architecture, and activism, with a particular focus on Portland’s Albina neighborhood. Once the home to a majority Black population, organizations like Albina Vision Trust are working to rebuild the community after decades of urban renewal and demolition. The roundtable also serves to share otherwise inaccessible expertise and practical, applicable insights, resources, and strategies gleaned from the personal and professional experience of our invited panelists in an effort to support local on-going work in Albina.

Gabrielle Bullock, Principal, Director of Global Diversity, Perkins & Will, Los Angeles
Lauren Hood, Detroit-based Community Developer and Equity Facilitator
Alanna Joy McCreary, Albina artist and resident
Winta Yohannes, Managing Director, Albina Vision Trust
