Mercury Company I (June 2020)

Video by ShutterSky Pictures

COVID has been a transformative experience creating unprecedented uncertainty. The inaugural Mercury Company, ART found a model to employ with confidence as the pandemic timeline continues to shift.  Individual donors, along with State of Oregon distributed COVID relief grants, funded the additional round of creative work that took place during the six-week intensive process (20 projects were worked on by nearly 90 artists). A series of audio dramas and experimental short films will be released to audiences in the winter, spring, and summer of 2021. ART is planning its next Mercury Company development process which will occur in the spring of 2021.
