EARTH ARTS NW, an Arts & Humanities program based in Portland, OR., was founded with the goal of integrating enriched learning opportunities about Pacific NW eco-systems, history, and culture, into outcome-based art activities and events.
From 2003-2015, the Earth Arts team worked with thousands of K-12 students, sharing eco-arts activities, and developing student-inspired Earth Stories. We celebrate these children with the knowledge that many are now adults doing what they can to act on their concerns for the Earth.
In the interim years, ( with the in-school education program on permanent hiatus ), we’ve produced community art events focused on the environment, in collaboration with regional organizations. Now, in 2022, team members continue to work in the Portland Community on environmental and social justice issues while we adapt select earth stories and art projects for publication through Storieseed, an imprint of Dreaming Earth Press.
