Special Update: Branding & BurnOut

Hello from your Precipitation Northwest Board of Directors,

We have big news to share with you - we have a new logo, an updated mission statement, and an updated website!

New logo - meet Nimbus!

New logo - meet Nimbus!

After months of collaboration with local artist Ka(Ren) Green we’re excited to unveil our new logo, Nimbus.

Click on our new cloud logo to learn more about our design and the philosophy behind it.

Special thanks to Ren for the generous donation of her time and talent to create this logo for us, and for teaching us so much along the way. Check out her portfolio to see the other great stuff she’s created!


Our original mission statement was developed by committee and provided to the new board of Precipitation Northwest in February 2016. We are excited to share our new and simplified mission statement that we feel aligns with our vision for our organization’s future, along with a brand-new vision statement.

Mission: Precipitation Northwest’s mission is to foster opportunities for collaborative art, civic engagement, and leadership development.

Our Vision: We envision an inclusive Greater Portland community that thrives on civic contribution, non-commodified participatory art, education, events, and open-source leadership development. All are welcome to participate in this community, and participants are actively encouraged and enabled to share their creative gifts, learn, and grow together.



To go along with our new logo, updated mission statement, and new vision statement, we’ve also updated our website. Among other updates, we now have Board Member Biographies, details about how you can Get Involved with us, as well as details about making tax-deductible donations. It is our hope that our new website is a better reflection of who we are, and helps our community learn more about us, our mission, and our ongoing activities. Please take a look around! http://www.precipitationnw.org/



Finally, we’re hoping that you all will join us for our organization’s kickoff event this weekend. As a reminder, BurnOut 2017: Portland’s Official Decompression is happening this Saturday, October 7th at The North Warehouse in north Portland. Presale tickets are $22 and are available online until Friday, and then door tickets will be available for $28.
