Caldera Announces 2020 Artists in Residence

Posted on: January 17th, 2020

Caldera announces 28 artists who have been selected for residencies in winter 2020.

 

Through our residency program, Caldera supports artists, creatives, and cultural workers to build skills, relationships, and projects that inspire growth, combat oppression, and activate change. Residents draw inspiration from the residency community and the natural world surrounding the Caldera Arts Center in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains. Caldera offers 2 and 3.5 week residencies January through March. Residencies are open to US-based and international artists, creatives and cultural workers in any discipline. Artists at any stage of their careers who are not current students are eligible. Residencies are open to parent artists who would like to bring their children.

 

In 2020, residents will create new works in ceramics, comics/illustration, dance, poetry, painting, music, and many other genres. While in residence, these artists will also offer workshops to students in Caldera’s Youth Program as well as to the public.

 

Please join Caldera for three afternoons of art and conversation with our 2020 Artists in Residence at Open Studios. This year, our first Open Studios on February 1 will be held at the Downtown Bend Library. For our next two events on February 29 and March 28, we invite you to our Arts Center near Sisters. Open Studios is an exciting opportunity to connect with dynamic and diverse artists from around the country as they share their work alongside young people from Caldera’s Youth Program. Artists in Residence, as well as Caldera students, will share their work with the public through presentations and performances. Admission is free and light refreshments will be served.

 

Applications for 2021 residencies will be open February 1, 2020.

Taiko Empowerment Workshop: Telling your story through the drum

Posted on: December 27th, 2019

Taiko Empowerment Workshop: Telling your story through the drum

Caldera, The Lodge in Sisters, Age Friendly Sisters, and Citizens for Community present a free workshop with Caldera January Artists in Residence, Unit Souzou.

 

Sunday, January 19, 2020 at The Lodge in Sisters (411 E. Carpenter Lane, Sisters)

12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m Refreshments provided by The Lodge; 1:00 p.m – 3:00 p.m.

Workshop Registration: Email Maesie.Speer@CalderaArts.org or call 503.937.3075. Space is limited!

 

Feel firsthand the power of the drum! Taiko (Japanese drumming) is an energetic fusion of sound, movement and spirit, and has been a loud and proud voice to express stories of identity and cultural heritage. This free workshop, presented by Caldera, intersperses background information with taiko demonstrations and dynamic hands-on participation. Through a rhythmic journey, we will also share stories through body and rhythm exercises to discover your unique identity story through the empowering beats of taiko.

 

Stories generated in this workshop will inform and inspire the development of Unit Souzou’s new performance project, “Constant State of Otherness,” that will debut in June 2020 at Caldera. This project seeks to build empathy and empower identity through community engagement and innovative artistic exploration, rooted in the art forms of Japanese folk dance, taiko and theatre.

 

This workshop is designed with beginners in mind, no previous taiko experience necessary, but students must be 14 years of age and older. Participants can expect to be physical and make noise, and to share stories and listen. Please wear comfortable clothing and bring water.

 

Unit Souzou was founded in 2014 by Co-directors Michelle Fujii and Toru Watanabe, relentless innovators at the forefront of a growing artistic movement within the taiko community. ‘Souzou’ can be written in three ways meaning ‘creation’ (創造), ‘imagination’ (想像), or ‘noisy’ (騒々), alluding to a force by which new ideas are born and take shape in the world. Inspired by these words, the mission of Unit Souzou is to build creative, imaginative works while honoring the history and roots of the taiko art form.
