Reclaim IFCC for the Black community of Northeast Portland!

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!

The  Black performing arts community of Portland has been stifled.  Black artists have been separated and dispersed around the city. Interstate Firehouse Cultural Center or I.F.C.C., which used to be a hub for Black arts, has fallen woefully shy of its purpose. We at Epic Cultural Collective would like to return the IFCC building to its intended purpose and build within it an ecosystem of Black artists. From visual to the performing arts such as dance and drama, our purpose at the Collective is to transform the communities of NE Portland through accessible art and technical education, and of course, high quality performing arts and cultural programming. This petition represents the voices of those who believe that NE portland should reclaim the IFCC for its intended use of supporting and providing consistent high-quality programming that represents people of the African diaspora.
