I was a guest on Eva Lake’s radio show on this morning. We talked about Portland’s strengths and weaknesses as an art community in light of the national and international attention the city has received in recent years. The conversation is less about aesthetics (esp. from my mic) and more concerned with fostering a supportive ecosystem— grants for alternative venues such as Appendix, Recess, and 12128, affordable close-in live/work spaces, group HEALTHCARE plan for freelancers of all stripes.
Hold your horses— it takes a while to hear my nervous voice but it picks up by the second half.
