Forrest Jackson (he/him)

Forrest Jackson is a pianist, vocalist, a (sometimes) trombonist, and recording artist based out of Milwaukee. Growing up in a music-loving family, Forrest has always been surrounded by different genres and soundscapes and brings all of these influences to his playing. From rock to jazz, or EDM to Rap, it’s never about the genre for him. “I don’t think of genres as categories or ‘boxes’, to me, they’re options, intertwining paths that hopefully lead to something sounding cool.”  Want to work with him?

Posy Knight (she/they)

Posy teaches visual arts for Milwaukee Public Schools and serves on the Board of Directors of 53212 Presents. Knight is a Featured Member at the Walkers Point Center for the Arts where she created the Short Dance Film Series (2021). She has appeared online in Theatre Gigante’s “Fairytales” (2021), Quasimondo Physical Theatre’s “ADA” (2021), and “Giraffe on Fire” (2022) and was last seen onstage in a two-person recreation of Franz Schubert’s song cycle “Winterreise” created with tenor Tim Rebers in 2019. Her philosophy is inspired by Mierle Laderman-Ukeles' Maintenance Art Manifesto (1969). Knight is an anti disciplinarian artist, which Amir Reza Asadi describes as follows: “Interdisciplinary work is when people from different disciplines work together. But antidisciplinary is something very different; it’s about working in spaces that simply do not fit into any existing academic discipline–a specific field of study with its own particular words, frameworks, and methods.”
