The Alberta Abbey is operated by a non-profit organization dedicated to providing affordable space for the arts. It's becoming a local hub for music, dance, theatre, and visual art.
The 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that operates the Abbey was created in 2018 to sustainably address the need for affordable arts space in the city of Portland. We utilize the building’s 23,000 sqft by offering below-market workspace to artists and arts organizations, affordable event rental spaces, and signature programming that is responsive to the desires of our neighbors and the city’s arts community.
Alberta Abbey aims to nurture the creative, visual and performing arts in N/NE Portland by amplifying opportunities for Black and underrepresented communities. The Abbey serves this mission by providing affordable education, gallery, studio, and performance spaces, and showcasing events for local groups of all ages.
The Elevate Unity Benefit Music Series is a collaborative effort created from the necessity to support the arts, reconnect our community, and promote Unity through the healing message of music! Our focus is to advocate for inclusion equality and support of our local venues, staff, gig workers, and musicians from the devastating effects of our industry shut down from COVID.
Our hosts include Soundstage Events, Ladies of the Rose, Music Millennium, Music Portland, and Alberta Abbey always striving to Elevate Unity, diversity, and love for each other, our community, city, and country!
