Big Sis, Lil' Sis is a moderated chat about friendship, support and the mentoring of women creatives of color and those that identify. Drawing from the experiences of our creative work and the importance of mentorship, we’ll have real talk about creative life, sisterhood and what it means to be a creative of color in Portland today.
All are welcome.
Current panelists: Precious Bugarin + Gaby Tirta Jenkins (moderators)
Plus more to be announced soon.
This is a free ticketed event with a suggested donation of $5 - $20 at the door to help support our panelists, Regional Arts & Culture Council, and cover our expenses.
Big thanks to our host the Regional Arts & Culture Council and our panelists. We heart you!
