RACC Arts3C Grant Feedback Group

Mosaic String Academy 5120 SE 28th Ave, Portland

I'm celebrating the launch of Substrate Arts Consulting with a free grant feedback group. There are six spots available for artists of any discipline to join a feedback group that will meet at 7 pm on Monday, September 12 at Mosaic String Academy, 5120 SE 28th Ave, Portland, OR 97202. This is a great way to get more comfortable with grant writing in a fun, low-cost setting. We’ll be focusing on the upcoming RACC Arts3C grant program. Each participant will share their application or ideas, and I and the other participants will offer feedback. You don’t need to have written a draft of your application, or even have a fully formed idea for what you’d want your project to be. A group of artists giving feedback like this can be incredibly powerful, not matter what challenges you’re encountering in your grant writing process.  RSVP to reserve your spot.


Glass Stories EP & Chapbook release concert

Resound NW 1532 SW Jefferson St, Portland

Glass Stories is a collection of two short stories, two songs, and photographs inspired by the fragility, adaptability, and resiliency of glass. The project makes connections across boundaries of history, fiction, and music, with the mythical and physical presence of glass as an inspiration. It’s also a project that marks a new chapter in my career—this is my first collection of short stories, and shows the deep connections I’m hoping to build between music and fiction in the coming years. I'll perform on banjo and voice, with Amelia Lukas on flute, Catherine Lee on english horn, and Jasnam Daya Singh on harmonium and piano. Rebecca Sanborn will play a solo vocal/piano set to open the concert. Print copies of Glass Stories chapbook will be available, but attendees are strongly encouraged to pre-order tickets and merchandise through the Glass Stories Kickstarter campaign.
