What started as an affordable arts calendar became an experiment in reframing the artgoing experience. We love the Portland performing arts scene and wanted to share that fandom in different positive ways: interviews, weekly recommendations, fan art,
t-shirts… Anything and everything we could do to promote live performance art. Artpunk Club is a collection of joyful work celebrating a year in the life of Portland theater community fandom.
Cultivating a sense of relatability and accessibility through dumb art jokes
Inviting artists to contextualize their own work
Fun printables to celebrate our favorite upcoming shows
Promoting affordable arts to nontraditional audiences, one Weekend Roundup at a time
The Artpunk Club Calendar closed in March of 2020, but performance art is alive and kicking in Portland. Here are our top three favorite sources for staying on top of Portland’s hottest performance art as the world reopens and new art-going possibilities emerge.
The Portland Mercury is the best source for all kinds of theatre, from improv to opera
Dance Wire is the ultimate hub for Portland’s vibrant dance culture
Performance Works NW is constantly hosting some of the coolest, weirdest art in Portland, and it’s always affordable—an absolute treasure.
A huge thank you to the entire Portland arts community for a great year. Here’s to seeing you again in 2021 and beyond!
