Pacific Northwest College of Art (PNCA) and Etsy.com announce their intentions to develop an ongoing relationship to foster opportunities and offer support for the local Do-It-Yourself|craft community.
This new relationship — the first ongoing commitment for Etsy with a school of art and design — seems appropriate in Portland, Oregon, nationally recognized as the hub of American DIY youth culture enriched by PNCA’s vibrant student body and alumni community.
Etsy and PNCA will also work directly with a group of local artists — the Portland Etsy Team — to host bi-monthly meetings at the College’s Museum of Contemporary Craft.
Please join us for the Friday, February 26th event.
