The amazing folks at Creative Portland are putting on this show, who tells us:
Executive Director of Creative Portland, Dinah Minot, is the artistic director
of HEAR, HERE . Collaborating with a large curatorial team of local music industry pros,
Creative Portland has assembled community sponsors offering in-kind services and
marketing outreach to promote Portland’s exceptional performing arts talent.
"All the Whos in Whoville are gathering together to lift up and celebrate our local talent,”
Minot envisions. “Some of the performers have attained national act status, while others
are emerging as cutting edge performers. Many will be ‘discovered’ by at least half of
the audience,” Minot says of the talent lineup.
