In HERE || Humboldt, Lisa K. Bates and Sharita Towne, also known as the Black Life Experiential Research Group (BLERG), present research-based art and activism from the past year as Artists-in-Residence for the Humboldt neighborhood. This work centers Black life of the past, present and future as integral to the community’s fabric.

BLERG worked with students and faculty at Jefferson High School, local organizations, neighbors, and local artists. We invite the public to take part through the Social Emergency Response Center in the gallery. The SERC is a space for collective information-sharing, idea-generating, and responding creatively to the ruptures in our community. It is a space of radical welcoming and healing. When you visit, you can record your stories of Black family and community in the StreamPDX Airstream trailer studio, see art and activism by Jefferson High School students, make art and share your ideas about how Black people and community can thrive.
