Access Notes

We're on the 11th floor, come on up. Non-members park bikes outside the building. Paid car parking is connected to the building, and a SmartPark is two blocks away near Target. Located on SW 10th and Washington, between Target and Powell's, on the big block of food carts. We're on the Streetcar line, a block from the Red and Blue MAX lines, and a 5-minute walk from the Green, Yellow, Orange lines.



Featured talks: Leo Daedalus - The Late Now Leo hosts the thinking mammal’s live late-night-style variety-cabaret-talk show. A considered fiasco for the avant set.

Vivian Hua In 2005, I started a publication called REDEFINE, which began with no particular focus. It grew to become a music and arts publication dedicated to covering lesser-known and independent musicians. In the past year (2011), a series of extraordinary [personal] circumstances has led to the complete thematic and conceptual overhaul of REDEFINE. The music industry is not even close to what it was in 2005, and the site's new mission, moving forward, is one that I hope will be predictive of changes to come in the industry.

Sara Mirk - Oregon History Comics In 2009, I started on what I thought would be a quick, fun educational project: Creating 10 small comic books about Oregon’s history. My friends, myself, and the majority of Portland didn’t grow up in the state, so researching and writing these comics was a way to help build understanding of our surroundings in a relevant, accessible medium. Local arts and culture nonprofit theDill Pickle Club joined on as a collaborator and over the past two years we’ve raised $2,500, hired nine local artists, and published six of the ten comics. The box set of comics is finally being released this March 5th at Powell’s!

Ezra Spier - Where Coffee Comes From Ezra has traveled far and wide, to plantations in South America and Africa, to see every step of the process of making coffee. Follow one of our favorite beverages from berries on the plants to our greedy, greedy mouths.
