Abstract
  • Arts organizations can beautifully express a community's identity through music, dance, and theatre. Through their performances and outreach activities, performing arts organizations can engage audi­ences in transformative experiences. However, an arts organization is more than just "the performance." The behind-the-scenes of an arts organization provides its own unique narrative documenting a com­pany's rich history that can be made available to the public through archival collections, which can include materials such as administra­tive records, grants, financial documents, community outreach activ­ities, in addition to audio and video recordings. Similarly, an archive can be more than just a physical repository of those collections. It can showcase a performing arts organization's records through a number of outreach efforts for the benefit of both the performing arts group and the archival repository that collaborates with it and stewards the collection. The Oregon Multicultural Archives (OMA) exemplifies this type of collaboration with two of Oregon's leading performing arts groups, the Obo Addy Legacy Project and the Milagro theatre company.
