/The Wake of Vanport/ is so named to honor the death of a city and the 
viewing of its history through the collection of Vanport stories told by 
the voices of those who lived there. It is also a celebration of life 
after loss. Vanport is a lost city of Oregon with a rich history for all 
Oregonians.

Join us for this screening of multimedia works produced during the 2014 
Vanport Multimedia Project dedicated to collecting and preserving 
Vanport survivors' stories. Community members, local historians, 
artists, media makers and educators collaborated to turn oral history 
interviews into short and powerful pieces of digital audio and visual 
narrative.

Immediately following the screening there will be an opportunity for 
discussion with survivors and producers. Refreshments will be served.

The Vanport Multimedia Project is an ongoing project of The North 
Portland Multimedia Training Center (NPMTC) to collect and archive oral 
history from individuals in the Portland African American community. 
Thanks to the generous support of Meyer Memorial Trust, the Oregon 
Community Foundation, the Multnomah County Cultural Coalition and The 
Skanner Newsgroup for supporting the 2014 Vanport Multimedia Project. 
NPMTC is a project of The Skanner Foundation.
