Guest Curator Series

Serving as the center’s second independent guest performing arts curator is Andre Bouchard (of Kootenai/Ojibwe/Pend d’Oreille/Salish descent), an activist, agent, director, producer, and consultant who was born and raised on the Flathead Reservation in western Montana.

With a background in both Native and non-Native worlds, Bouchard serves as an intercultural activist, working to build bridges and reverse the invisibility that marginalizes Native people in the U.S.

Bouchard's selections this season include Voices from the Urban Indigenous Campfire on Indigenous Peoples’ Day in October, the Native Comedy Jam in February (check back soon for more information), and two nights with george emilio sanchez’s solo theatre work, In the Court of the Conqueror, in April.
