Signal Fire was founded 10 years ago on three beliefs: first, that artists offer creative approaches to our world’s most daunting challenges; second, that activists foster drive and resources to strengthen communities; and third, we knew y’all had to be friends. Signal Fire could have really grown to become anything, and you have made this thing so much more dynamic, rigorous, and playful than we ever initially dreamed.
At the outset, we imagined small groups traveling together into threatened wildlands, discussing ways to shift the dominant views of land in the American West. You invited us to take on more. Thanks to your belief, support, and labor Signal Fire has hosted several original exhibitions, taken over 400 artists into the backcountry, developed and published seven issues of our original journal Leaf Litter, fostered a guide collective of 12 incredible leaders, and helped countless first-time campers ignite their passion for wilderness advocacy.
This event will also serve as a final soiree for c3:initiative in their St.Johns location. For six years, c3 has supported creative inquiry for 80+ artists in the region. c3:initiative is honored to host Signal Fire’s 10 Year Anniversary celebration, continuing to share resources with their creative community, a core value which will continue to inform their mission in their new downtown location opening later this year.
Please join us! Our 10th Anniversary event will celebrate and raise funds to support our growing community through an experiential silent auction, raffle, food and fare! Piping hot Kaj-anne Pepper will emcee. Enjoy live music by Colectivo Altepee, Colectivo Son Jarocho de Portland, and Marisa Anderson music. See you out there!

The Hollywood Theatre's bimonthly series QUEER HORROR takes a trip to summer camp for THE FINAL GIRLS! Sponsored by Royale Brewing Company and Finger Bang Portland, this summertime screening opens with a preshow tribute to the greatest final girls of all time hosted by Portland’s premier drag clown Carla Rossi!
Directed by Todd Strauss-Schulson and written by Joshua John Miller and his husband M.A. Fortin, 2015’s THE FINAL GIRLS takes recently-orphaned Max (Taissa Farmiga) to a memorial screening of the ‘80s camp slasher film CAMP BLOODBATH starring her late actress mother (Malin Akerman). After a freak accident in the theater, Max and her friends find themselves trapped inside the movie itself, leaving Max to team up with her mother’s cinematic doppelganger against an omnipotent ‘80s slasher. Also starring Alia Shawkat and Adam Devine, THE FINAL GIRLS is like CABIN IN THE WOODS meets THE LAST ACTION HERO, but as a harrowing, hilarious, and heart-wrenching homage to the horror genre and the women who lead it.
Thursday, August 23 at 9:30 PM | $10
ABOUT QUEER HORROR:
QUEER HORROR is a bimonthly festival of genre works by queer artists, performers, and filmmakers questioning horror’s relation to queerness and what it means to identify with the monster. Maybe it’s the fact that queer people are so often relegated to shadows of otherness that the horror genre is more immediately relatable for us. We grew up with boogeymen. We’ve lived with boogeymen. Goblins and ghosts are a welcome escape from real-life monstrosities.
From the work of James Whale and John Waters to Patricia Highsmith and Clive Barker, horror has deeply impacted queer culture and sensibilities and QUEER HORROR asks why. QUEER HORROR is programmed and hosted by Portland’s premier drag clown Carla Rossi and her human avatar Anthony Hudson, with artwork by resident artist Jason Edward Davis. Crawl into the crypt at Queer-Horror.com.
Calling all artists! SOMArts is thrilled to announce a new partnership with La Pocha Nostra, collaborative production company of the legendary Guillermo Gomez Peña. This year, members of La Pocha Nostra will host one of their international performance workshops at SOMArts.
As LPN’s largest project in San Francisco this year, this workshop is geared for all artists interested in exploring the concept of the “city in ruins” and artist-driven responses to the politics of urban land-use. Workshop exercises will focus on the human body in relation to the built environment and architecture and involve the creation of interactive, performance installations inspired by the workshop’s themes. The results of this 10-day pedagogical experiment will culminate in a two-day public presentation featuring work by workshop participants.
Applications to participate in the performance workshop and culminating festival are available now. Click here to learn more and submit your application by Monday, June 18.
Looking forward to a wonderful day! All are invited. Please come to whichever portions of the afternoon you'd like.
2:30pm - Leo's Ordination as a Lutheran Pastor

Pepper Presents: Drag Queen Tag Team! A Non-Stop Drag Improv and Lipsynch Performance.
June 19th Tuesday 6pm-9pm
The Alberta Street Pub 1036 NE Alberta
Hosted by Pepper Pepper
With Special Guests Loretta Good Lordchild and Kel Dae
Drag Queen Tag Team's idea is simple.
We press play on a very special playlist, and then don't stop. For the duration of the performance there must be someone "performing" at all times. Audience members determine the constraints and improv games each queen must perform with during each number. Audience members have a chance to "tag in" and lipsynch their favorite songs! It's weird, it's messy, it's an experiment and I KNOW YOU'RE GONNA LOVE IT!
Bring a friend, IT'S FREE! All your tips go to support the guest queens performances!
