Trisha Mead works to develop new audiences for the arts through a variety of channels in Portland Oregon. As President of the Portland Area Theatre Alliance she founded the Fertile Ground Festival of New Work, a citywide festival or world premiere performance that takes place the last week of January each year and ranges from dance to theater to puppetry to film, all created or commissioned in Portland Oregon. Currently she works as the Director of Marketing and Communications for Oregon Ballet Theatre, after having worked in Marketing and PR at Portland Center Stage and Artists Repertory Theatre in Portland Oregon. She regularly contributes to the blog and conversation at and was selected to be an official blogger for the New Play Institute Convening “From Scarcity to Abundance” in January of 2011 at Arena Stage in Washington, DC. At that event she had the weird but wonderful experience of being quoted out of context by the NY Times art blog in response to Rocco Landesman’s controversial remarks on the “oversupply” of arts producers in the U.S. Once upon a time, she also considered herself a theater artist, directing plays under the auspices of Mt Hood Repertory Theatre’s American Classics Festival where she was the Associate Artistic Director. #
