Meet 2018/19 Colleen Porter Resident Mélissa Smith
"Being at the IPAY Conference as the Colleen Porter Resident was an incredibly valuable experience. I got to meet so many interesting people from all over the world and take part in many important conversations. Seeing shows from different regions is always so inspiring as an art maker myself. I recently premiered my first original family friendly show in NYC and was able to share it with others from the IPAY community. Its helped me become
connected to TYA work happening in NYC and hopefully I will be able to share my personal work with a wider audience as well. I look forward to spending time in Denmark for AprilFest and continuing to foster the connections I'm making as the Colleen Porter Resident throughout the year."
