At the juncture of suburban neighborhoods and rolling farmland, Metro’s Cooper Mountain Nature Park isn’t a typical jazz venue – but it’s the perfect place to discuss the value of risk, collaboration and individual voice in this highly democratic art form. Scholar and musician Tim DuRoche will look at the literature, economics and history of jazz.
The Conversation Project, unplugged
Oregon Humanities and Metro unplug this summer, bringing some of Oregon’s most fascinating thinkers to voter-protected natural areas. What better setting to explore sense of place than riverfronts, rolling hills and oak woodlands? Bring a picnic lunch to enjoy; Metro will bring the pie. Conversation is free. No registration required.
