Introducing Arts Mentoring Fellow: Beth Nixon
Beth Nixon is the human behind many Ramshackle Enterprises. She creates puppet shows, piñatas, parades, pageants, clown acts, suitcase theaters, illustrations, masks, magical lands and other spectaculah- on her own, and in collaboration with other humans of all ages, abilities and persuasions. Mostly she uses cardboard, science, and the imagination. Her performances and installations occur in galleries, garages, street corners and stages.
I am eager to provoke and engage in unfolding conversations with other artists who are interested in navigating the complicated and rewarding process of witnessing, nudging, questioning, and working alongside teenagers as they discover who they are, what they want to say, or what mediums and methods get them fired up!
