The Portland Grassroots Media Camp is a weekend of hands-on skill-shares, media workshops, presentations, discussions and gatherings aimed to empower people with tools and skills to express themselves. The camp is open to anyone, emphasizing the inclusion of those who are traditionally excluded from media representation, creation and production.

The next camp will be held Sept 12-14tth at PCC Cascade. Last year's camp had over 50 workshops from silk-screening and woodcuts to how to upload to you-tube, writing a press release, zine: peer editing, and much, much more!

The media's job is to interest the public in the public interest. -John Dewey
