MENSK. Amplifying Portland's Creativity.
Because the vibrancy of a growing city depends upon its ability to mobilize and energize its creative community.
The mission of MENSK is to inspire and support personal, local, and regional action for the development of creative and exciting communities. MENSK aims to be the missing link between the ideation and execution of your project, plan, or event. MENSK is only the last step, the logical leap, or the missing piece. The rest is you.
MENSK provides opportunities for artists, film makers, and anyone that has a great idea:
- + First Friday Truck Shows
- + Rooftop Film Series
- + Fiscal Sponsorship made possible by Ezekiel Callanan of OPTICLIFF, ESQ.
- The Board of MENSK is a creative force of its own and also collaborates on public art projects/ interactive installations and we organize Urban Earth Day every April.
+ JUNE 24th-30th: PORT FRINGE 2013
MENSK is excited to be a fiscal sponsor for the second annual performing arts festival.
