Thinking Outside the Cardboard Box

Join Dignity Village and Kwamba Productions along with Street Roots and Sisters Of The Road tomorrow for a night of theater, film, art and education.

At the event, Kwamba and Dignity Village will screen a portion of the Tent Cities Toolkit interactive movie in which Dignity Villagers, Portland¹s former commissioner EriK Sten, Street Roots Israel Bayer, JOIN’s Marc Jolin, and many others are featured.

Portland's street newspaper Streets Roots, Sisters of the Road, among others, will open the event with exhibits from local street artists and photographers. The event will also premiere the 15-minute play "Road to Dignity," written and performed by Dignity Villagers, and directed by Deborah Rodney and Phyllis Jones.

The play is a lighthearted sketch of a typical day at Dignity Village, narrated by Gizmo, one of the Village cats. The play breaks stereotypes of why people are homeless. It gets down to the real nitty-gritty of who we are as people, neighbors, and as members in the community.

The event will close with an open-mic hour of music and poetry from the audience and broader community. If you would like to participate in the open-mic, please bring your instrument (mics are provided) and join the fun!

When: Thursday, May 8, from 6:30 ­ 9:00 PM (Doors open at 6PM)
Where: Hollywood Theatre (4122 SE Sandy Blvd, Portland)

Admission is free at the door!

Thinking Outside the Cardboard Box is sponsored in part by Regional Arts and Culture Council and will premiere local art, photography, a theatrical play, and a film.

This is a collaborative project between Dignity Village ( and Kwamba Productions (, who are long-time partners in producing outreach materials for ending homelessness through alternative housing communities.
