Building Bridges in Bridge City -
During difficult times, when illness, financial crisis or just plain life strikes, where do people turn for solace? One unusual and supportive non-profit organization in Portland has been building community through writing for ten years. Write Around Portland offers writing workshops to those who may not otherwise have access to the power of writing in community. Our participants come from diverse populations such as women emerging from domestic violence, homeless youth, people living with HIV/AIDS, burn patients, veterans returning home, Senior day care and many others. A show about Write Around Portland would include the voices of our participants, their amazing writing, our volunteer workshop facilitators and what it is like to witness the coming together of strangers in a supportive environment. We think that in today's tumultuous economy, community is essential to our well being.
