Joyous Outreach to You/th (JOY) is All Classical Portland’s extensive project dedicated to equity and inclusivity. JOY is comprised of three initiatives: Youth Roving Reporters, Where We Live and Night Out. Learn more in our JOY Brochure 2018-2019
In an effort to provide access for music-lovers who don’t attend live arts events for a multitude of reasons, whether it is a loss of spouse, inability to drive, or lack of a sense of belonging, All Classical Portland will facilitate an evening of art and/or music, with arrangements for travel and tickets. Through this inaugural series, All Classical Portland will act as a bridge between outstanding arts organizations and people who yearn to experience the rapture and sense of community associated with the performing arts, in person.
Youth Roving Reporters is All Classical Portland’s arts journalism mentorship program. Through this innovative, educational program All Classical Portland on-air hosts mentor selected Youth Roving Reporters, providing them with guidance and insight on what it is to be a broadcaster and arts leader in their community. The goal is to award this scholarship to youth from regions across the entire state providing equal opportunity to youth in rural areas or Oregon and SW Washington as well as the Portland metro area. Please get in touch with Arianna Avena at 503-802-9454 if you are interested in sponsoring a young reporter in this project. View 2017/2018 Youth Roving Reporters
Where We Live Series
All Classical Portland will shine a spotlight on a variety of organizations in our community that are providing programs in art, theater or music that explore the intersection of art and social issues. Through this newly branded series of on-air spotlights, we seek to promote equity, foster inclusion and encourage emotional literacy.
