Bell Workshop with Midori Hirose and Montavilla Farmers Market
Kirkland Union Manors invites you to participate in Midori Hirose’s year-long community & place-making art project in collaboration with Montavilla Farmers Market and with the support of RideConnection.
Midori Hirose’s bell-making workshop centers on the history of SE Portland’s Japanese American farming community and its natural habitat. Japanese American farmers were once active in the early 1900s. During WWII, families were sent to internment camps, and many did not return. A few of the orchard trees planted are still fruiting to this day.
This event is hosted at and in conjunction with Kirkland Union Manors and the ULRA, a non-profit with the sole purpose of providing affordable housing to seniors, primarily immigrants. Representatives from Montavilla Farmers Market will be in attendance, a cornerstone of community connection and health, as well as Ride Connection, a group offering solutions and independence to those without transportation options.
This event is FREE and open to the public. Registration Required.
We welcome community members as well as family members.
