We are specifically interested in intersections of disciplines with artists from underrepresented and cultural communities. What if mythology and hip hop came together? Where does ASL meet dance? Can we follow Shakespeare with actors who are engaged in partner acrobatics? What happens when you put your aria into an aerial harness? Think aspirationally. Seek partnerships with other artists. Pitch us a piece that demonstrates what is possible when our differences intersect. Please specify if your work is intended for audiences of all ages or for mature audiences.

About Fertile Ground:Fertile Ground is a non-juried festival of new works representing a variety of artistic genres, from fully staged world premiere works of theater, to experimental and ensemble-driven work; from workshop productions, readings, and performance events, to collaborations including dance, music, comedy, and visual art. Unlike a typical fringe festival, Fertile Ground’s focus is on sharing the work of our local artists, ensuring that the artistic and financial benefits of the festival stay in Portland, while showcasing Portland‘s creative community to the world.
