    Exhibtion is a project organized by Maria T.D. Inocencio, here idea behind the show is:

    "The current climate of division we are experiencing has been destabilizing.  People from a variety of backgrounds feel threatened and uncertain about the future. One way of dealing with our sense of uncertainty is to turn to each other, to reach out and to hold on tight.  By building our community and working together, we can comfort and encourage one another to create the respectful and inclusive world that we want to live in."

    "The Rosewood Initiative is a community center in east Portland, originally created through a joint effort by local stakeholders and PPB officers in order to increase safety in their neighborhood.  Today, Rosewood serves a diverse low-income population that includes, refugees, immigrants and the homeless, connecting them to support for needs as basic as food, shelter and safety."
