The home base of our community, workspace, and artistic inland activities like shows and poetry readings, MUDDY WATERSCOMMUNITY HOUSE, is going to be SHUT DOWN by the end of this week if 10,000 dollars is not raised to pay bills. Muddy Waters' focus is creating stronger, healthier people through an atmosphere of creativity, compassion, and contagious better good. We are an employee-owned organization which is transcending its former role in the business sector in order to actively serve and build our neighborhood and community of southeast Portland, Oregon. A lot of people will be on the streets provided this goal is NOT met, for they have put their livelihood on the line for this place, and as some may know, an extremely beautiful venue has just been finished in the back of the cafe to provide an extremely warm and aesthetic atmosphere for events, shows, and community gatherings like writing workshops through Write Around Portland, to people with low-income or who are otherwise not able to afford a quality writing learning experience. For the people that read this that are in the area, ANY help, especially money, would be appreciated. To those of you not in the area, please follow the links below to donate to the cause.
