Stories of Resilience is a virtual showcase and gathering, sharing insights from Unit Souzou’s work over the past year. Featuring work from the Unit Souzou Ensemble, the East Portland Neighborhood Cohort, and artistic collaborators, visual artist, Horatio Law and filmmakers, Dawn Jones Redstone and Annie Tonsiengsom, the program will share new works including video diaries, video shorts, and live interviews from two different projects:
- RHYTHM is our community engagement project exploring how our communities are experiencing and imagining safety in East Portland.
- Constant State of Otherness is our years-long creative and community engagement project, in partnership with organizations around the country, examining notions of otherness, displacement, and belonging.
Presentation supported in part by APANO Communities United Fund, Multnomah County Cultural Coalition, City of Portland, National Performance Network Documentation and Story Fund, and Oregon Community Foundation Creative Heights.
