Meany Center invites you to join us in an exploration of where artists get inspiration and the processes they go through in developing work.

Individual artists who are performing at Meany Center or undertaking Creative Research at the University of Washington through our Mellon-funded Creative Fellowship Initiative are given a platform to share a window into their creative process with an audience. Artists participating in this free public series will share their in-progress creative research, showing new and developing works in-progress or offering experiential engagement with the processes they employ to generate new work.

Event dates and locations are announced online throughout the year.


Creative Process Series:
JACK Quartet

Saturday, May 18, 2019 at 7:30 PM 
Meany Hall – Katharyn Alvord Gerlich Theater

The members of the JACK Quartet don portable EEG and wearable muscle neuron sensors in "Human Subjects," the culminating performance of the group’s extended residency at the University of Washington, during which the musicians collaborated with UW faculty in DXARTS and Music Composition to explore complex integrations of brain and body signals into the domains of artistic performance. This collaboration was made possible through the UW Creative Fellows Initiative with funding from the Mellon Foundation.
