Portland Refugee Youth Music Camp

"Pass the Mic" is Portland Meet Portland's first annual week-long Immigrant and Refugee Youth Music Camp! The Music Camp will culminate with a LIVE community performance of the youth. This camp will be ABSOLUTELY FREE to the 20 youth we’ll include and to the concert goers. 

Portland Meet Portland is teaming up with Wilson Vediner, who helped start the highly successful Pendleton Rock Camp and guitarist for Portland based bands Months and Point Juncture, WA. Through this collaboration, they will pilot the first 2018 Pass the Mic Music Camp in mid-July to serve the creative needs of immigrant and refugee youth in Portland and to foster cross-cultural relationship building through music!

At Pass the Mic, immigrant and refugee youth will form bands and learn songwriting, how to play instruments, how to run technical equipment, how to design and create band logos, how to collaborate musically, and other things essential to performing the enjoyment of building cross-cultural community.
