Everyone’s A Critic

Discussion Table at On The Boards

Discussion Table at On The Boards

Working closely with On The Boards between September 2012 and March 2013 we identified seven members of the local arts community – each representing a different segment of the ecology – and invited them to respond to a work in the On The Boards TV catalogue. We spent a week in residence working with respondents to develop their presentations, culminating in an evening of lecture/performances followed by community discourse.

Respondents included critics (The Stranger’s Brendan Kiley and independent critic Jose Amador), artist/administrators (Tonya Lockyer from Velocity Dance Center and Matt Richter), a long-time subscriber (Serge Gart), a young audience member and aspiring writer from the TeenTix program and press corps (18 year old Olivia Menzer) and Tommer Peterson, deputy director of Grantmakers in the Arts.
