ALL BOATS was founded by JULIA BRAY a performer, writer, creator, and teacher from Portland, Oregon. She believes in the power of deadlines and containers. Sometimes, in order to excavate our most precious creative treasures, we need to be held accountable by our community. She believes art is integral to healing, and access to the opportunity to explore a creative process and share their artistic practice is essential to our collective growth. Capitalism and colonialism weighs heavily on the human spirit, robbing us of our labor, our life force, and the earth’s resources. This performance series supports artists as they support each other, by encouraging safer spaces to share and witness each others humanity. In connecting through the ritual of art, a rising tide lifts ALL BOATS.
