In September, a group of our West Coast grantees organized a brunch at the Ace Hotel in Portland, OR, during the TBA Festival. The event, supported by our Regional Gatherings Program, brought together Creative Capital grantees from the Pacific Northwest along with other artists and attendees of the festival.
Launched in January 2013, the Grantee Regional Gatherings Program is Creative Capital’s newest artist-directed initiative. The gatherings, initiated and organized by grantees for fellow grantees and the the community-at-large, are supported by Creative Capital funds, and can range from salons to Pecha Kucha-style events, workshops, happy hours, and more. Thanks to Holcombe Waller (2013 Performing Arts) and Miwa Matreyek (2013 Performing Arts), who organized the Portland event and shared these great photos. Many thanks as well to the Ace Hotel in Portland for providing the space and the catering!
