The NPMTC 2015 Vanport Film Project invites community members to participate in telling, producing, collecting, and viewing Vanport survivor oral histories.  The Meyer Memorial Trust, Oregon Community Foundation, and The Multnomah County Cultural Coalition have partnered with The Skanner Foundation and NPMTC to sponsor the project. 

Free story gathering workshops will be offered and include learning video and audio recording to capture the interviews, and editing skills necessary to produce multimedia stories. The free weekend workshops begin in April extending to August. The commitment is around 32 hours of workshop time plus 5-10 additional hours for filming outside the classroom.
