Concerts in Portland
Center Space Gallery
If you like movies, theater, photography, visual arts, music, etc, etc, etc, you want to be in Portland, a city on the Atlantic coast in the State of Maine. The motto: "contemporary, emerging and unconventional arts, artists, and ideas" Gallery Space 538 could be extended to the entire city: Art, artists and ideas emerging, contemporary and unconventional. This space was created with the idea to create an artistic space right there in the middle of the neighborhood. In the mornings and evenings this art gallery is a hub where you can either be a painting student or a student in a photography workshop, or if you ask, perhpas even a teacher. On Wednesdays and Fridays and weekends, exchibitions are open at night and concerts as well as short samples are performed. The Space Gallery is already one of the favorite places chosen by more and more artists as they choose Portland as the spot to exhibit their artwork.
Neighborhoods in Portland
The Arts District
The Arts District in the beautiful city of Portland is a central neighborhood where every shop window is decorated in detail, and every corner announces an event or a show that will be held in the coming days (always updated). And in summer there is always a painter who exhibits his works in a cloth outdoors, while a guitarist sings the songs of Bob Dylan. The shops always advise responsible consumption, and create items from recycled material or items which are recyclable. In this area there are restaurants and bars such as Alternative Space Gallery's that I talked about yesterday, or the Blue Note. The most practical thing to do is to go with notepad and pen down what you are interested in. I, going down Congress Street, met a group of break dance and rapper, all very young and very talented. Well, will you meet them!

Community Garden in Portland
The community garden idea arose when the land was made available to the council and its dimensions could not, however much they wanted them to, build a block of apartments. A group of residents requested to make the site a community social work project. They wanted to plant their own fruits and vegetables. Originally 5 people working the land, this figure has grown to 50 people who, in turn, go once a week to offer assistance with the deserved reward. Each season the fruit and vegetables are harvested and distributed. It was a joy to experience for a day even though I went on harvest day!....
