WeMake Celebrates a night to play, learn and make.

Join us to celebrate the process of making, the spirit of community and design in action. Proceeds from this event will go to support All Hands Raised First Octave, a grant to raise money for arts and music education in the under-served Portland and Multnomah schools.

Highlighting the event is Put A Bird In It
A select group of makers have created one-of-a-kind, uniquely crafted birdhouses to be auctioned off for arts and music education. These houses are sure to WOW more than just the birds!

Other Festivities will include:

Curated poster show
