WELCOME TO YOUR NEW OFFICE.
WELCOME TO EMPOWERMENT CENTRAL.
We're building a BIPOC-powered community Studio space from the ground up, in the heart of Portland.
A SAFE SPACE FOR BIPOC
AND COMMUNITY TO THRIVE.
We're creating a community of small businesses and creatives rooted in Portland, OR who believe in the power of lifting one another up as we thrive. We see that in our city, BIPOC Portlanders and those from underrepresented communities need a space that's owned and operated by us. We currently don't have enough space to grow as a community. And we're here to change that.
OUR COVID SAFETY PLAN
It's more important than ever that we keep each other safe. Here's our plan for protecting the health of our community:
Masks required in entire space, per Oregon state law.
We're maintaining 6 feet of distance between all community members.
We're limiting capacity to 25 people for the time being.
We're keeping an eye on local public health data to update our Covid safe practices as needed.
WE'RE HOUSING THE COMMUNITY OF ENTREPRENEURS & CREATORS
