Refresh Portland Is...

How do we (you included) refresh Portland?


Refresh Portland offers an eclectic speaker series highlighting expert voices on creative and technical topics as well as offering space for new voices to shine. Our intent with these events is to promote inclusivity, holistic thinking, and fresh ideas.

We want to:

Refreshing Goals

  • Leave our industry Better than we found it*
  • Highlight new voices
  • Promote local people and ideas
  • Share our knowledge

Your voice matters. And there’s an audience that wants to hear what you have to say. Really. Send us a note if you’d like to present.

We are available to help you with your idea; it doesn’t need to be completed or a perfect talk. We’re here to help you write a talk you’re comfortable with and excited to give.

See you at the next event,
~Matthew, Susan, and Kristin.
