Help us make art and farming accessible!
Public Annex is an all volunteer run 501(c)3 non-profit organization funded by grants and donations from our community. Keeping our art and farm classes affordable, providing artist stipends for the Field of View residency and paying artist contractors all across the disability spectrum for their creative work is a necessity to us as we work to break down systemic barriers that prohibit marginalized populations from inclusivity by building a community around accessible farming and art programming. With the support of people like you, who value inclusivity in the arts, equal access to food sources, and truly accessible spaces, we have accomplished so much in the past two years. Since Public Annex was founded in 2016 we have…
Hosted over 160 accessible art classes and had over 1000 people attend
Connected 8 artists experiencing disability with 8 community spaces around Portland for the FOV Artist Residency
Exhibited the work of over 60 artists in galleries such as the Portland Art Museum, Wolff Gallery, Paragon Arts Gallery, KSMOCA and Pacific Northwest College of Art
Constructed 5 out of 20 of the projected accessible raised garden beds on the Side Yard Annex farm
Paid out over $20,000 to artists all across the spectrum of ability for their creative contributions and labor
