About Pendeja Studio
In 2019, Pendeja Studio facilitated 2 photoshoots, 1 video shoot, & a pop-up shop all highlighting the diversity within the communities of color here in Portland, & also featured collaborations with La Bodega Latina & Maíz Colombian Street Food.
In 2020, we redistributed emergency funds from a grant we received to BIPOC people in need of anything from a warm meal to art supplies due to COVID. This later evolved into our SYLI Grant Fund. We also spent a good portion of the year prioritizing making masks for the community, & we also launched a web-based workshop free for BIPOC. By the end of the year, Alex quit her day job to pursue Pendeja Studio full-time.
Aside from our seasonal drops & content creation, our goal going forward for 2021 is to roll out the debut of our SYLI Grant Fund, & continue our web-based workshops, & maybe even open a storefront that could double as a community hub for creativity. Thank you for being here <3
