Exhibit by Portland Adult Education Students about Immigrants Life in the Portland Area

  • Opening event: December 6 from 4:30 to 7 pm
  • December 7 from 10:30-11:30 am

The exhibition can be viewed from December 6th to December 15th whenever City Hall is open (approx. 8 a.m. until at least 6:30 p.m.- and often later).

Students in upper-level ESOL classes at Portland Adult Education have created work for an exhibit about immigrant life in the Portland area.  The exhibit will be on display at Portland City Hall. Please consider bringing your classes, friends, and co-workers there to view it.

The exhibit includes profiles of local immigrant leaders, immigrant-owned businesses and organizations important to immigrants.

Students also wrote about their own experiences moving to Portland from other parts of the world.  Some students wrote personal accounts of their journeys to Portland and the challenges that they have faced. Students in some of the classes involved in the exhibit will give oral presentations about their reports at these times.
