10-Day Portland Festival of Visual Art, Music & Performance | August 14-23

We usually don't put up events this far out, but we are this time because a) it is going to be fantastic and long, so start planning for it b) PDX Pipeline is a sponsor & c) they are looking for help with video so comment/email if you can help.
