PDX Bridge Festival Creative Director Tucker Teutsch 3.0Tucker Teutsch 3.0, Creative Director

PDX Bridge Festival’s creative director and project leader, Tucker Teutsch 3.0, has extensive experience in logistics, installations and public art management for large community events. Most recently, he was lead site manager and logistics coordinator for Symbiosis 2009, a festival drawing over 10,000 people to a 100+ acre property in the heart of Yosemite Valley, where he managed all heavy equipment used in big art builds, power grids, and ambient/safety lighting for the event. Prior to his work on PDX Bridge Festival, he successfully executed Basura Sagrada, the 2008 Community Temple Installation at Burning Man, which draws a crowd of over 40,000 participants. His responsibilities included the management of 200 crewmembers and oversight of a $115,000 budget. Teutsch’s 2007 project, the Tasseograph: Trash Tea Temple, was a collaboration with artist Shrine and functioned as a traveling exhibit that was seen by more than 150,000 people during 12 festival-site installations before being bought by a private collection in Marin County. Teutsch prides himself on being a writer, craftsman, builder, networker, and project manager. He is excited to bring his knowledge of festival logistics and large-scale art fabrication to the center of Portland.

Jessica Klinke, Managing Director Jessica Klinke, Managing Director

A leader of PDX Bridge Festival’s non-profit, Jessica Klinke has served as the Board Chair since co-founding the organization in September 2009. Prior to moving to Portland, she worked as a fundraiser for a long-standing and successful land trust on the San Francisco peninsula, helping them complete a $200 million capital campaign. For the last two years, Ms. Klinke has partnered with Teutsch on a range of projects, most notably as the business and funds manager for Basura Sagrada, where she developed and managed the $115,000 budget for and played a major part in raising over $70,000 from individual and in-kind donations for the project. Additionally, her experience includes program management for arts-in-education programs and independently produced audio documentaries and radio programming. With a master’s degree in folklore and eight years of non-profit experience, Ms. Klinke is thrilled to put her skills to use for PDX Bridge Festival.
