Fueled by the passion for learning, sharing, and creating.
This is the foundation of WeMake.

We are a local, non-profit 501 C(3)  that helps to foster art and design in Portland, Oregon's creative community through hands-on experiences, creative dialogue, and design-in-action initiatives. All of our events are focused on the process of making and the spirit of community.
