Today’s interview episode of Getting Work To Work is the fourth in a four-part series promoting Design Week Portland, “a week-long, all-inclusive festival celebrating the projects and processes as told by a creative community across many disciplines.” In these interviews, you’ve met amazing creatives who are not only producing great work, but also giving back and building a community of equality. Learn more about Design Week Portland at DesignPortland.org.
Now that the stage is set, I would like to introduce you to Celeste Noche and Emilly Prado, the people behind Portland In Color—an amazing website, database, and journal “celebrating the city’s artists of color.” In this conversation, Celeste and Emilly share about the origins of the project, the importance of building trust by honoring and respecting each person’s story, and how building this community has impacted their work.
