2021/22 Native Artist-in-Residence: Arianne True

On August 31, 2021, Seattle Rep announced its first Native Artist-in-Residence Arianne True, a local poet and folk artist.

“Arianne’s project excited the selection committee on many levels,” Director of Arts Engagement Nabra Nelson said. “The way she approaches poetry seamlessly integrates performance and writing, and her showcase installation will bring the PONCHO Forum alive in a way that has never been seen before. Not only will her interactive installation inspire audiences and community members, but additional community engagement throughout her residency will open our eyes to experimental poetry and Native art throughout the season. Seattle Rep feels prepared and excited to support Arianne in this next stage in her artistry, and to kick off the Native Artist-in-Residence program with her vision at the forefront.”

This chance at the Rep felt so important because it seemed like exactly the space exhibits could go 3D in, letting the full vision come out and with the support I need to make something like this happen, and with an institution I'm excited to collaborate with.
