The new documentary series MADE HERE, a project of HERE in New York City, examines the daily lives and challenges of NYC-based performing artists. Episodes explore issues like Creative Real Estate, Day & Night Jobs, Family Balance, Activism, Identity, Money, Career, and Home. These issues are part of daily life for performing artists in Portland too. Join Boom Arts, PICA, and tEEth Performance for a special screening of MADE HERE episodes with the documentary’s NYC-based producer, Tanya Selvaratnam Scheib.
Explore how these issues impact performing artists in Portland through a panel discussion featuring local artists, and become part of the conversation through an audience Q & A and post-discussion reception.
Panel participants include:
Thomas Lauderdale of Pink Martini
Linda Austin of Performance Works NW
Jonathan Walters of Hand2Mouth
Actress Michele Mariana
Erin Boberg Doughton of PICA
Moderated by Helen Daltoso of the Regional Arts and Cultural Council (RACC).
