Our Artists Profile Project & Interview with Tony Carnell!

By August 14, 2023No Comments

Our artists profile series is a dynamic initiative that seeks to celebrate the talents and narratives of artists within our vibrant Pacific Northwest community. In this project, we aim to provide a platform where diverse voices can be heard, shining a spotlight on the unique journeys, inspirations, and contributions of individuals who have made a mark. Through the interviews, we delve into the artistic journeys of our participants, exploring their experiences, creative processes, and how they’ve enriched our community. These artist profiles not only highlight their incredible work, but also create new opportunities for collaboration and connection with Heidi Duckler Dance!
