Bottom Line for Portland

In the past year, IPRC provided resources, classes and outreach engagement to more than 8,000 Portlanders from all walks of life, including but not limited to incarcerated people, homeless youth and adults, elderly populations and K-12 students. Its varied programming includes media literacy, zine-making, creative writing, book arts and comics.

“It’s been a little more than a year since I stumbled on your magical rooms, and they have allowed me to share my work with others, the ultimate goal of the creative process. I finished five books this past year and have more in the works. I couldn’t have done it without you.”
