ALL BOATS was founded by JULIA BRAY a performer, writer, creator, and teacher from Portland, Oregon. She believes in the power of deadlines and safe spaces. Sometimes, in order to excavate our most precious creative treasures, we need a little push. She created ALL BOATS to encourage a playful exploration of the creative process and to give others the euphoria of sharing what they love. The grueling aspects of the industry as a business can weigh heavily on creators. This performance series hopes to support artists as they support each other--after all, a rising tide lifts ALL BOATS.
