Annual Arts & Culture Summit

Fostering collaboration and best practices in Portland's arts & culture community

Creative Portland hosted Portland's first Arts & Culture Summit in May 2018, convening leaders from the city's arts & cultural community under one roof for the first time. Participants were asked if they were interested in attending an annual summit, and the answer was a resounding "Yes!"

This annual summit will include best practice consultants, workshops, and strategic planning in an environment of collaborative action and support of our community.

The 2019 Portland Arts & Culture Summit will take place on June 18th at Ocean Gateway.

We are also looking for individuals to spearhead a steering committee! If you are interested, please email for more information.
