We’re buzzing with excitement about this year’s Arts Northwest Conference, October 16-19, and the stunning new Patricia Reser performing arts center in Beaverton, Oregon. Not only is the Reser a brand new center— just opened last year and already transforming Beaverton’s arts community—but it’s also a brand new and exciting venue for Arts Northwest. This year, for the first time, all events will be held in the center’s 550-seat main stage theater, or in small spaces designed for rehearsals, events and performances.  This will make it a whole lot easier to mix and mingle and enjoy all the conference has to offer. And here’s more good news.  Beaverton is a breeze to reach. If you’re flying into Portland, just hop on a tram straight from the airport—they leave every 30 minutes and the stop is a short walk from the Reser and conference hotel. See you in Oregon!

  •  Over 50 live performances (Juried showcases, fivepointO & Sessions)
  •  Professional development workshops
  •  Networking opportunities

All this and more in a friendly, fun, and productive gathering.
