Stage|Craft: Connecting Creative Communities
We believe that Portland’s thriving Maker Community shares values with the city’s live theatre and arts community: a drive for creative expression, hands-on learning, local pride, collaboration and one-on-one connection with craft, art and community. Stage l Craft will use Hand2Mouth's "in the field" theatre-making techniques, Artists Repertory Theatre’s ArtsHub program and season productions, Disjecta's multidisciplinary expertise to integrate and showcase the work of Portland Makers through Art Design Portland (ADX), Portland Apparel Lab (PAL) and Portland Made. These partnerships aim to bridge the gap between Portland’s various creative communities by integrating local Makers, their products and their passions into the existing art and theater community. Stage l Craft will integrate Portland’s Maker community into the forms and programs of the art and theater community, encourage robust intersections of art and artisans in both behind-the-scenes and live iterations and to result in increased awareness and participation in both communities by the artists, makers and general public.
Artists Repertory Theatre, in collaboration with Hand2Mouth and Disjecta Contemporary Arts Center, is a participant in the Audience (R)Evolution Cohort Grants program, funded by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and administered by Theatre Communications Group, the national organization for the professional not-for-profit American theatre.
