Help the Vibe Studio expand to St Johns!!

A fundraising campaign for Vibe of Portland

Help us raise $20K in 20 days! Join us as we further our efforts in North Portland, offering quality Arts and Music Education at a second Vibe Studio!

JOIN US as Vibe of Portland furthers its efforts in North Portland by opening a second Vibe Studio in the St. Johns neighborhood! For over a decade, Vibe of Portland has partnered with local schools, PTAs, and community organizations with the aim to empower local youth through quality, ongoing Arts and Music Education. Our dedicated Teaching Artists have worked with students at over a dozen local schools, and serve over 500 students through Vibe@School on average, annually.  This would simply not be possible without the continue support of our generous community.

Throughout the years, our partners continually told us more was needed: more classes, more schools, and more opportunities outside of school. In 2010, Vibe of Portland opened our first Vibe Studio with the aim to replicate throughout the community's most underserved areas. The Vibe SE Studio aims to serve as a creative anchor by providing a safe, inclusive space for individuals of all ages to creatively express themselves through Art and Music.  Our hearts are exploding as we reflect on all that we have accomplished with your support in the past year: Over 650+ students have been served through 70+ classes, camps, workshops, and community events at the SE Studio.  


Vibe has been presented with an incredible opportunity to open a second Studio in St. Johns- and we need your help!! Help us create year-round Arts and Music Education opportunities for students at the twelve neighboring schools near the proposed location. North Portland is historically underserved in Arts and Music Education. Your support will help launch this creative space, and lay the foundation for further partnership with St. Johns and North Portland schools.


THANK YOU for your consideration.  We look forward to hearing from YOU!  

What do you want to see in this space?  How can we truly make it a

CREATIVE ANCHOR and meaningful gathering space for this community?  How can we best PARTNER with this community to ensure expanded Arts and Music Education becomes a reality?  TOGETHER, we will build upon our experience and passion for creative expression to empower our YOUTH!

My warmest regards,

About the Organization

Vibe of Portland provides long-term visual arts and music education opportunities and access for students across the Portland Metro area. Through our Vibe @ School programs located at 12 schools in SE, NE and North Portland, students receive weekly classes for the entire school year. All classes are taught by professional teaching artists who are active artists and musicians in our community. Vibe's Art Studio located in SE Portland is a children's art studio focused on quality art classes where students have open ended projects, learn art history and use quality art supplies. Vibe's Summer camps ensure that students retain and grown in their artistry and musicianship over the summer rather than have the typical "summer slide". Until art and music are FULLY restored into the school day, Vibe will be working with schools, community partners and families to ensure their children have access to quality arts education.
