Third Room was a space for empowerment of individuals through collective gatherings around art and ideas, located at 707 NE Broadway suite 205 in Portland, OR. It was active from Oct 2017 - Feb 2021.
Through open access programming, collaborative participation, and a collective love-ethic, we were able to support over 50 artists and activists who did the most with the least. Together, we shaped space under the belief in the transformative power of a solidarity economy, and the ethos that art making is for everyone. We prioritized work that exists outside the market and were not interested in what the cannon, taste, or trend had to say in terms of what holds value.
Like all things in life, we must come to an end. We are so grateful to have gathered under these tenets. We hope you continue to ask yourself, "what do we need more than space and each other?" and remember the spirit that brought us together.
