Portland Stories of Change
Our Portland Stories of Change fundraiser will be Thursday, November 10. Mark your calendars and reserve your seats today.
Caldera is a catalyst for the transformation of underserved youth through innovative, year-round art and environmental programs.
We never saw Caldera as a place that creates artists. It is a place that creates community. That inspires confidence. Provides clarity. Caldera is the simple notion that when you show someone the power of their own creativity, it suddenly feels like anything is possible. Whether it's as a camper, a counselor or a resident artist; whether it's through the arts or the environment or the people; Caldera exists as a way to find that creativity, and enable the change it creates.
