Mon, April 27, 7-8pm @ The Project Room
Performance Artist and Poet Sierra Nelson invites us into a conversation questioning the roles divination, science, and artistic practice play in our understanding of the past and choices for the future. She’ll be joined by her longtime collaborator Rachel Kessler to bookend the conversation with some live experiments.
Mon. May 4, 6-7pm: Breathing the Water: Short Films about Denise Levertov. Author Rebbecca Brown and TPR host this evening remembering the great American poet, activist, and teacher Denise Levertov.
Photographer Ethan Rafal explores our topic Monument in Shock and Awe, a part journal/part photo essay multimedia work about homeland decay.
Artist and Educator Jenifer Wofford met with TPR Editor, Tessa Hulls, in San Francisco to discuss the themes of monument and memory and their presence in her work.
The Project Room is a place of creative inquiry, where different points of view and areas of expertise are presented to an audience. In addition to the arts, programs feature technology, history, geography, industry, and other fields that intersect with the current theme. The goal is to better understand how creativity works for different kinds of people, and to appreciate its relevance to everyday life.
THE BIG QUESTION
In 2011, TPR opened its doors with the question, “Why Do We Make Things?” After nearly two years of conversation, presentation, and experimentation about this theme, the theme shifted into our second "big question": How Are We Remembered?
