The yearly event heald the first weekend of March has had a wonderful 15 years. Factors being what they are, the organizers have decided to announce the end of an era. The time has come to honor the SE Area ARTWalk for all it has been over the years. Many people of the SE Portland area came together to create a local showcase of art. We achieved many things and ultimately, our goal of elevating community involvement around art and culture. Yet, with all our efforts and love of the event, we now find the event unsustainable in the current times.
Thank you to all those who contributed time, effort, and commitment to make it happen. Thank you to local neighbors, neighborhood organizations and businesses for support with finances, sweat equity, spaces to show art, organizing skills, patience and all that went with throwing the event every year. We had a wonderful 15 years in SE Portland!!!
Thank you from the organizers of SE Area ARTWalk and may the future of art and culture in our neighborhoods continue to thrive.

Announcing a year to build and set a defined path of activities and responsibilities for our event in 2020!
Following is an overview of the activities and two areas the Board is seeking support to make the SEAAW 2020 event more engaging and easier to participate in for the Artists, Supporters (Hosts and Sponsors), Patrons, Volunteers, and the Board.
2019 will be dedicated to outreach, organizing, building creative relationships, assessing the event, adjusting to our new and ever changing neighborhood surroundings, and getting together face to face with our creative core in the community.
Are you ready, willing, and dedicated to take on a board or part-time volunteer position?
We are seeking (2-4+) individuals to join the SEAAW board to assist with the coordination and details that make the SEAWW happen. Monthly meetings will be held starting in September at a central SE location and are required to plan and prioritize next year’s and future SE Area ARTWalk priorities.

If you are serious and can commit to be a part-time volunteer for a 6 month span of time (Sep-Mar) then please contact us at above email and be a contributor to the future and betterment of the the SE Area ARTWalk.
