2017 Cultural Work Highlights

by Candace Kita
Cultural Work & Development Coordinator

We hosted our third year of our MicCheck! Cultural Event Series, including the first ever East Portland Arts & Literary Festival (EPALF): a full day of performances and art by artists of color. Over 400 people attended this event led by our very own Arts & Media Project (AMP).

We granted over $40,000 for creative placemaking projects in the Jade and Midway Districts, including dance performances at bus stops, a youth photo essay, Division St. illustrations and playing cards, and giant anti-displacement posters by 11 Dance Co, OPAL,. Yelena Roslaya, Hampton Rodriguez, Sabina Haque, and more!

We commissioned original artwork illustrating APANO's core values, launched our Cultural Work Roundup cultural events listserv, and even hired our first Cultural Work & Placekeeping Intern!

Here's to more in 2018!

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
