The Project Room's Jess Van Nostrand and THESE STREETS co-creator Gretta Harley interview musician and Pen/Bingham Award winning writer, Vanessa Veselka about her experience of Seattle's music scene in the 90's..
THESE STREETS is both an original theatre piece, and a historical addendum about the nearly forgotten women musicians in Seattle during the famed grunge years. Created by Stranger Genius Award winner, theatre maker and actress Sarah Rudinoff; and rock musician, Cornish College of the Arts' faculty member and composer Gretta Harley, These Streets has brought together women through rocker girl dinners, cocktail parties and filmed interviews. The University of Washington will house the oral histories in their library.
THE PROJECT ROOM is a gathering place and online platform dedicated to asking questions about contemporary life. Through a dynamic collection of artistic public programs that focus on works-in-progress, The Project Room presents work, ideas, and people that demonstrate the relevance of creativity in everyday life. projectroomseattle.org
