Introducing Rejoice!’s newest creation and upcoming production – Been Ready. For us in the Black community, we’ve always been told “stay ready so you don’t have to get ready.” Ready as in ready for the discrimination, ready for the prejudice, ready for the racism. Well… we are ready, we’ve been ready and now its time to galvanize. Been Ready brings together our five personal experiences navigating conflicts that are inherently imbued with layers of race, gender, and bias. With an inward focus we find what makes us ready.

SPACE Program

SPACE (Supporting Partners, Artists, and Community Events) offers PICA’s space, equipment, staff and other resources in support of local artists and community organizations to curate and produce residencies, programs, and events.

SPACE is supported in part by the Regional Arts & Culture Council, Maybelle Clark Macdonald Fund, James F. and Marion L. Miller Foundation, Pacific Power Foundation, and Rose E. Tucker Charitable Trust. 

More information on the SPACE Program, including its two-year history at PICA, will be released in coming months.
