Mar. 2, 2023: Spokane Art School moves, School of Improv and ¡No Pasarán!

On TA(P) this week: Tad Wisenor plus Blue Door Theatre reps and antifascist writers

This week's episode of the Thursday Arts (P)review — where the "p" is parenthetical because we look both forward and back — includes the following:

  • The Spokane Art School has a new home in the University District. SAS board president Tad Wisenor explains why they moved out of the city's Garland District and what the new facility offers. The grand opening for the new location (503 E 2nd) is on Friday, March 3. That's also the opening reception of their Women’s History Month show “The Feminist Experience,” which runs until March 31.
  • Blue Door Theatre, which remains rooted in the Garland District, recently launched the Spokane School of Improv. Artistic director Frank Tano and board president Jim Mohr explain how the school helps expand the theater's workshop opportunities and bring improv skills to all walks of life.
  • Rebecca White's interview with Shane Burley, Joan Braune and Shon Meckfessel. Burley is the editor of ¡No Pasarán!: Antifascist Dispatches from a World in Crisis; Meckfessel and Braune are among the many Northwest contributors to the volume, which explores facets of antifascist organizing and the rise of the far right. White spoke to the writers ahead of their talk at the Spokane Central Library last weekend.

The Thursday Arts (P)review airs every Thursday at 12pm on KPBX with a roundup of arts-related news and information from across the Inland Northwest.
