There is some disagreement about what East Portland actually is. Some consider it everything east of the river, some consider it everything east of 82nd, some consider it everything east of the I-205. For purposes of this project, we consider East Portland to be any neighborhoods beyond 50th or so that have been historically ignored by the City. That being said, we are especially interested in hearing from curators who live east of 82nd.
You should definitely apply to be a curator. If your connection to East Portland is something we feel gives you an important perspective into East Portland, we'll probably want you to be a curator.
