The Mythos Council is a group of ten youth from across Portland who are passionate about engaging their generation with both mythology and new media. With help from 11 community partners, we took the lead in organizing a digital storytelling competition with awards and prizes up to $5,000. On June 25, we invite you to come celebrate the youth who entered and the hard work of all!
Play youth-created games. Hear the sounds of your favorite video games through the stylings of a live saxophone quartet. Unleash your inner powers and document the results in our photobooth.* Eat up food and myths from around the world. Meet the other people who made this happen.
If you would like to attend, please email the Mythos Youth Council at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The event will be held in the Fred and Suzanne Fields ballroom on the ground floor of the Portland Art Museum’s Mark Building.
*If you already have what it takes to dress up as your inner superhero or supervillain, great. If you don’t, we’ll have people and supplies on hand to help you make it!
