Siren Nation is a unique arts organization that showcases and creates performance and exhibition opportunities for women throughout the year. It is the only women’s collective that produces an annual festival showcasing the original work of women working in music, film, performance and visual art. Siren Nation’s mission is to inspire and empower women of all ages to create their own art and to highlight the many achievements of women in the arts. Siren Nation promotes and showcases the original work of women artists by creating year round performance, exhibition and educational opportunities.
Mag-Big isa retail shop and art gallery for local designers located on 33rd/Hawthorne Blvd. We are currently featuring over 225 artists from Portland, representing a wide array of apparel, jewelry, house ware, craft, and visual art. In addition to fostering such a huge community of production artists, our shop offers sewing classes, craft nights, DIY workshops, art openings, and many other exciting events.
Breedom Public Sewing House is a comfortable, stress-free space to learn the art of sewing. We’re committed to developing a community of skilled teachers and sewing enthusiasts that can share their techniques with others. It is imperative to us that the time-honored tradition of sewing reaches all ages and genders. Our Public Sewing House also allows patrons to rent out a machine by the hour for personal projects. We also sell locally made sewing notions and consignment items built by our teachers and students.
What makes Alley 33 really stand out is its active occupation of an entire city street for the purposes of bringing Portland’s best designers directly to the public space. By building nearly a 60 foot run-way down the historic mural alley of 33rd ave, we present to our community a reason to celebrate local production.
As more designers are signing onto our program, it is becoming more evident how special this event will be. It is the first of its kind, and Hawthorne is the perfect site for the collaborative efforts of those who define our cultural terrain through design and production.
We have also scheduled TWO very exciting fundraisers which directly contribute to this event, and will be an absolute blast!
The two BIGGEST Clothes Swaps of the year!
Saturday, April 23rd 11am-3pm at The Woods
and Sunday, May 15th noon-5pm at The Secret Society.

See you there!!!
Our last meeting was committed to serious deliberation about which designers to select for the 1st Annual Alley 33 Fashion Event. Now that we have made our selections, we have a clearer vision about the structure of the show, and in what categories our apparel designers may be featured.
Our show will include
-easy-fit / casual
We have finally agreed on the perfect name for our show, befitting of its geographic qualities, its guerilla-style aesthetic, and its urban ethos:
The 1st Annual Alley 33 Fashion Event.
Our panel has officially made its selections for the program of designers, and we’re so excited to involve them in what is sure to be Portland’s next-big fashion premier.
Our pledge video should be ready in the coming week, so please keep yourself updated. There’s so much more to come!
If you have any questions about getting involved, please contact Fashion.Hawthorne@gmail.com
As a committee, we are working hard to plan three major fundraisers, and have also launched a pledge drive on kickstarter.com. Our video for kickstarter.com will be filmed in the coming week or so, so watch out for that, too!
Please check it out and share it with others!
Other fundraisers are in the works and will be really fun and exciting– such as a HUGE Clothes Swap!!!
Thanks you all for supporting local production! We’ll keep you updated!
