Artists' Union Connections
This month's Presentation: TBA ++++++ Every 2nd Monday of the month, The Artists Union and NXT Lab is hosting AU Connections at 1302 SE MLK JR BLVD for creative minds to network, socialize, build supportive community, and learn about the Artists Union. A WORD ABOUT DONATIONS: Due to the ongoing costs of covering our meetup subscription, we are asking folks to contribute a suggested donation of $5 for this event per person. Use the "Chip In" button on our homepage to make a donation any time, or look for the "Donations" jar at the event. If you want to give more than this, great! If you don't have $5, you CAN still attend, but we encourage folks to contribute what they are able. Know that your donations are not currently tax deductible, but will go directly towards helping continue our work as a startup community-based not-for-profit. WHAT TO EXPECT • Artists' Union will provide some basic food and beverage items, but we encourage people to bring a potluck dish to share. • For the first 30 mins, folks are able to mingle, snag food/drinks, and get comfy. • At or around 6:30 pm, we will provide a brief presentation concerning the union, progress on our goals, and any announcements. • Each month, we will feature a variety of special guests speakers, performers, presenters or themed art project offerings throughout the year. Please contact us if you or someone you know would like to present, or be a featured artist of the month! • Union Board Members and/or Volunteers will be on hand until 8:00pm to talk one-on-one with you, hear your concerns or suggestions, provide more information, and assist with membership pre-registration, volunteer sign-up, or other ways you can help get involved.

What we're about

This group is our presence for Artists' Union Local 503. We host monthly Meet & Greets to provide an opportunity for local independent working artists, creative folks, and allies to have a place to network, share ideas and resources, and have fun, as well as learn more about what we're doing and how you can get involved.

Artists' Union Local 503 is a not-for-profit, local community-based organization, created by artists, for artists & creative folks in the Portland, Oregon metro region. Like Artists' Unions in England and elsewhere, we hope to provide services and advocacy that improves the lives and careers of our membership and community supporters.
