This morning, Commissioner Fish introduced Subashini “Suba” Ganesan as the City’s next Creative Laureate.
Suba is a leader in the regional arts community, an educator, a performer, and a non-profit founder. An immigrant from Singapore, one of Suba’s goals as Creative Laureate is to celebrate diverse artists and art styles.
The Creative Laureate, established in 2012, serves as the official ambassador for the broader creative community in Portland. The Laureate participates in community education, advocacy, and public events including speaking engagements, workshops, and ceremonial functions.
