WANTG in PDX!!!

TGinstagramPDX3

It’s been over a year ago that I performed my one man, multi-media show WE ARE NOT TROUBLED GUESTS here in Portland…. and although I have performed it around four times here, I’ve had a number of people who still have not seen it and have requested me to perform it again.

Start time: 730pm

$5-$10 donation at the door.

All are welcome.

Imago Dei Community has been gracious enough to me to provide a space to put on this show. It will be held in their Prayer Chapel… which the entrance is on the corner of SE Ash St & NE 15th Ave.

Why The Church Needs Art @ Multnomah University

If you’re interested in hearing/seeing my talk about my experiences as an artist working with churches… well here’s a good 50 mins of content… and maybe some karaoke at the end. : )

 

 

WANTG in GRAND RAPIDS

TGposterGRI’m so pumped to be bringing WANTG to the GR on June 12th and 13th! That’s right. Two nights.

One of the most common pieces of feedback I get from attendees is that they wished they had a better idea of what this was cause they knew of 5 people that needed to see this. Well… now they’ll have that chance.

The show will be held at the Story Cafe (unintentionally perfect) and will begin at 730 pm.

$5 – $10 suggested donation at the door.

Tell everyone you know! Hope to see you there.
