Our community

Disjecta provides low-cost spaces for arts and culture organizations with tenant spaces in our building and partnerships on talks, workshops, performances, events, and more.


The Center Partners and Tenants

Current tenants include Carnation Contemporary, Photolucida, Pulp and Deckle, and She Shreds. Disjecta sponsors partnerships with Flock and Friends of Noise for ongoing use of spaces in the building. We host talks, workshops, performances, and events with our partners.

Additionally, c3 has regularly partnered with Disjecta, providing residency space and collaborations on programming to support Disjecta’s artists and curators.


The Kenton Neighborhood

Disjecta is located in the historic and diverse neighborhood of Kenton, providing a cultural center for the community through its own programming as well as partnerships with other organizations. 

Disjecta is part of the Kenton Business Association, hosting the KBA annual auction fundraiser for free each year.

Educational Partners

Disjecta hosts the University of Oregon MFA exhibition each spring. Events, presentations, and exhibition tours are regularly held for universities and colleges, including Clark College, Pacific Northwest College of Art, Portland Community College, Portland State University, and more. 

Disjecta has calls for interns and volunteers regularly. Internships and volunteering are valuable professional practice and learning opportunities. Many former volunteers and interns have gone on to jobs in the arts.
