Lecture: The Space Between Us

Join the Portland Art Museum for a lecture with Manuel Padilla, Executive Director, Portland Meet Portland. Global displacement is on the rise, thanks to intractable conflicts, economics, and climate change. Residents of the Northwest have seen and will continue to see the results of international migration in our own neighborhoods. In this conversation, Manuel Padilla, who has worked with refugees in Haiti, Chad, and Washington, D.C., asks participants to consider questions of uprootedness, hospitality, identity, perception, and integration and how we might build more informed, responsive, resilient and vibrant communities.
