Seattle poet Shin Yu Pai is one of 15 cultural and civic leaders to be invited (out of 95 applicants) to serve as a 2014-2015 ambassador for On the Boards (OtB), a local arts organization that introduces audiences to international innovators in contemporary dance, theater, and music, while developing and presenting new work by Northwest performing artists.
Ambassadors take an active role in shaping dialogue about the art presented at OtB and around trends, concepts, ideas, and opportunities arising in the creative community.
Ambassadors are selected by a community panel to represent the diversity of Seattle’s cultural community and to animate conversations across sectors.
OtB ambassadors receive complimentary tickets to use and share, access to artists and behind-the-scenes opportunities, and an honorarium for their active participation.
Pai is also a nominee for the Stranger Genius Award. (end)
