  • PONCHO (Patrons of Northwest Civic, Cultural and Charitable

    workshops, newer programs in classical music and dance, and creative
    residencies for artists. In multi-generational Summer Arts Workshops, talented and
    committed students of all ages continue exploration of an art form in a
    non-academic setting. These include Centrum's Festival of American
    Fiddle Tunes workshop, Centrum's Port Townsend Jazz Workshop, and Centrum's
    Country Blues Workshop, as well as new programs in classical music and
    dance. Creative Residencies host those who have committed themselves to
    creating art, whether in early, mid or later careers. During their
    residencies, artists immerse themselves in their own work, without
    distraction by the usual pressures and with no expectations but their
    own. Since 1985, PONCHO grants to Centrum have made possible Creative
    Residencies for scores of Seattle area artists. All of us at Centrum
    are grateful for the ongoing support from this remarkable organization.
