About Friends of Noise:
In the face of Portland’s fast-rising rents and many venue closures, Friends of Noise is a
dedicated group that celebrates and aims to preserve Portland’s vibrant and diverse arts
culture. Friends of Noise formed in 2015 to create more opportunities for the city’s youth to
produce, perform, and gather at all-ages music shows, and raise awareness for the need of an
all-ages venue. The organization began as a coalition of nonprofits and community leaders
including My Voice Music, Young Audiences of Oregon & SW Washington, Music in the Schools,
Rock ’n’ Roll Camp for Girls, PDX Pop Now!, Willamette Week Give! Guide, XRAY.FM, KBOO
Community Radio, and The Rosewood Initiative.
More information about Friends of Noise, and the details of the nonprofit are to be shared at the event.
