Overview

Gather with regional experts, advocates, activists and people who have experienced homelessness to imagine and pursue new ways to house the people who live on Portland’s streets. 

The Ideation Summit will accommodate ~ 60 participants, who will form groups to deliver innovative ideas that can be pursued at future events. Portland is known for its hackathon culture -- so let's apply the Hackathon for Social Good approach to the homeless crisis. 
-- Hackathon: a day of focused, determined, collaborative work
-- For social good: solving social issues by local communities, for local communities. 

The Summit will be a collaborative forum to develop innovative ideas and plans that take on the varied facets of Portland's homelessness crisis. The event begins with short presentations by representatives of and advocates for the homeless community, then participants will break up into teams for three hours to collaborate, innovate and propose a solution to present at the end of the day. 

In addition to ideas for future consideration, the day’s output will include a visual display for public view at PNCA through Feb 15.
