PULP & DECKLE 2012 - 2016
As the inaugural incubator program, Pulp & Deckle occupied a space within c3's North Chicago location in the St. Johns neighborhood of North Portland. Pulp & Deckle continues to operate as an independent community studio beyond their time in our incubator program. Their studio provides artists and paper enthusiasts with technical expertise and access to an adaptive papermaking studio.
We at c3:initiative humbly acknowledge that our programming is being held on the traditional lands of the Multnomah, Kathlamet, Clackamas, bands of Chinook, Tualatin Kalapuya, Molalla and many other Tribes who made their homes along the Columbia (Wimahl) and Willamette (Whilamut) rivers.
We take this opportunity to offer respectful recognition to the Native communities in our region, and to those who have stewarded this land throughout the generations. Please take a moment to consider the many legacies of violence, displacement, migration, and settlement that bring us together here today. We recognize the continual displacement of Native people by the United States and are committed to working to dismantle the ongoing effects of this settler colonial legacy. Please join us in respecting the contributions Indigenous peoples have, and continue to make to our community, country, and world.
