Priced Out: 15 Years of Gentrification in Portland
From pricedoutmovie.com: Priced Out is an investigative and personal look at housing discrimination and the pain of losing a community. The feature-length documentary explores the complexities and contradictions of gentrification. It illustrates how government policies and market forces that favor the rich work together to destroy and rebuild neighborhoods. And while many neighborhoods embrace new investment at first, few will be left standing once new money moves in and old residents find themselves increasingly priced out.
Please join us for this film screening followed by Q & A with filmmaker Cornelius Swart.
This film screening takes place at the Architectural Heritage Center – 701 SE Grand Avenue
Seating at the AHC is limited. Pre-Registration is highly recommended.
About The Architectural Heritage Center
The Architectural Heritage Center’s mission is to “inspire people to conserve the art, craft, and context of historic buildings and places to promote our cultural heritage as a vital element of livable, sustainable, communities.” We seek to preserve the historic character and livability of our built environment, and to promote sustainability through the re-use of period homes and buildings.
Owned and operated by the non-profit Bosco-Milligan Foundation, we empower people in the Portland region to preserve both landmark buildings and the regular “vernacular” vintage homes and storefronts that collectively define our neighborhoods, traditional downtowns,culture, history, and quality of life.
