Community Video Project

MAC Community Video Project


Do you want to share your passion for the arts with others? Do you love MAC and support what it has been doing for the community? If this sounds like you, then please consider becoming a star in this fun project! We are planning a compilation of short interviews that highlight community experience at MAC, and we’d love to hear your voices and your stories about what MAC means to you.


MAC Community Video Project


The purpose of this video is not only to have our community members come together and merge their diverse voices with positivity and shared love for the arts; but also to make community stories heard and memorable. Interested voluntary participants may contact Craton Highways
Participants should provide a brief description of why they want to be involved and how their story will have a positive impact on the MAC community (some of these written descriptions may be used in the video). An appointment will then be scheduled during the spring term at both parties’ convenience.


MAC Community Video Project


The interviewing process will take about 15-30 minutes. Interviews are expected to be short and concrete. All interviews will take place at the Multnomah Arts Center. The video is expected to come out this summer. All participants will be asked to sign the media release waiver before making the video. Individuals under 18 will need a parent/legal guardian to sign the waiver. Media Release Form


Studio Theatre Presents: Macbeth


“By the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes—Macbeth!” This winter term the Studio Theatre will present “The Scottish Play.” Scholars call it a ‘study in evil’ filled with court intrigue, treachery, murder and mayhem. And, as if that were not enough, there’s a ghost that comes to dinner, a wood that walks, a witch queen, her weird sisters and a drunken butler. Is this “a tale told by an idiot?” No! It’s Shakespeare!


Migration Stories: Call to Artists

Announcing a Call to Artists for a Special Exhibition

The Multnomah Arts Center is pleased to sponsor a juried exhibition, Migration Stories, in honor of World Refugee Day.

What is home? Is it a place? A people? A state of mind? What is it like to travel from the home you know to a new place? What is it like to be the stranger? To welcome one in? Many of us carry stories of a life-changing journey. It may be our own, or one from our family. It may be deeply connected to our identity, to our past, and affecting our future. We are a nation of indigenous peoples, ancestors of slaves and captives, refugees, and immigrants. How do our collective stories define us? Challenge us? Unite us? This juried exhibit explores the many facets of leaving home, of finding home, and how we make home where we are.
