PostSubject: OPPORTUNITY: Open Engagement Conference   Wed Mar 24, 2010 9:27 am

I Heart Art: Portland has been approached by the organizers of the Open Engagement Conference 2010 with an opportunity to become involved and help put together 200 tote bags for the participants of the symposium. The bags will already be silk-screened, but will need to be sewn together by a group of volunteers.

This is a great opportunity to garner visibility for I Heart Art: Portland and the Portland Etsy Team, in addition to being a great way for team members to get involved and make something unique!

About the conference:

Open Engagement is a three-day conference that is an initiative of the Portland State University Art and Social Practice concentration and co-sponsored by Pacific Northwest College of Art and Portland Community College. Directed by Jen Delos Reyes and Harrell Fletcher and planned in conjunction with the Portland State University MFA Monday Night Lecture Series, this conference features three nationally and internationally renowned artists: Mark Dion, Amy Franceschini and Nils Norman. The conference will showcase work by Temporary Services, InCUBATE, and a new project by Mark Dion created in collaboration with the PSU Art and Social Practice concentration.

The conference is May 14-17, and the tote bags will be assembled around the weekend of May 7-9. While we await the full details from the group organizers, we're putting out our feelers for preliminary interest from the team.

If you are interested in helping put the tote bags together, please comment below or email your contact information to iheartartpdx@gmail.com. Please also let us know if you have a sewing machine that you would be willing to bring to the sew-a-thon. Thanks so much!!
