The 13/14 Ambassador Project

On the Boards launched the Ambassador Project in August 2013 as an innovative strategy to promote audience and community engagement. In its successful pilot year the team of fifteen Ambassadors created various post-show discussions; social events; dance parties with live music and DJs; facilitated workshops with artists; wrote blog posts; created videos featuring OtB artists; curated 12 Minutes Max; hosted an Instagram dance contest; showed visiting artists around our city; created networking opportunities for regional artists during the NW New Works Festival; and shared On the Boards with their friends, families, and communities.
