SHAPING YOUR PATH and STORYTELLING

Emily Fitzgerald and Erica Thomas Erica and Emily are both practicing artists and creative consultants who met while earning MFAs from Portland State University’s Art and Social Practice program. As artists, they make collaborative work with other people, about where they come from and what’s important to them. In addition to being artists, they consider themselves educators, producers, writers, photographers, and storytellers, among other things. This unwieldy path has led them to become pretty good at facilitating dialogue that helps people better understand themselves, and each other. Both have created or produced many projects for, and with, senior citizens. They hold a deep commitment to social justice, which informs their art and life. Though Erica and Emily love working together, Emily’s favorite collaborator was her grandmother. 7
