Tense Forms is a community of working artists, musicians,
activists, writers, actors, crafters, friends dedicated to
producing and manufacturing new lovely art and helping that
art find its largest audience. The work is marked by its
quality, its attention to craft, its depth, its energy, its
humanity, its commitment to risk and its respect for its
audience. As a collective, Tense Forms will, in structure
and practice, be a non-traditional organization, marked by
a sense of trust and love and grace and fun and reverence.
By pooling the energy and resources of its local and
extended community, Tense Forms intends to create a low
cost, high quality, loving media empire, which sustains
both itself and its artists.
The flowers are watered and the weeds are plucked by
Andy Wagner, Casey Meehan, Craig Blakeman, Joshua Dumas,
Kirk Bravender, Mike Piontek, Nora McComiskey, and Susie
Harkins. Allison Stanley, Domenic Ferri, Jaime Roche,
Renee Bertsch, and VJ Hyde helped us plant seeds.
