Meet Wayne Potter, the Producer and Host of Keeping Kurrent. He lives in Tigard, Oregon. He has lived in the Greater Portland, Oregon area for more than 40 years.
One of best ways to keep open the lines of communication and cooperation open between the United States and Cuba is to participate in events in the Greater Portland area. “Viva Cuba and the US!” is a concert sponsored by the Cascadia Composers. The contemporary ensemble “Fear No Music” performs pieces by visiting Cuban composers on May 19th. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased at Cascadia Composers.

Promoting individuals and organizations engaged in improving the lives of people around the world.
As the Producer of the Keeping Kurrent program I want to encourage world understanding and peace. Given the excesses of world turmoil, I often wonder what it will take to find peace? I am involved in the organization Friendship Force Columbia Cascade, a member organization of Friendship Force International. This is an organization started by President Jimmy Carter in 1977. The organization is committed to encouraging peace through it’s person to person international exchanges. Participating is an important part of creating peace. However, I also want to find more and better ways to establish peace. I hope to explore this topic throughout this and the following years.
