Thalassa Raasch

I'm a visual storyteller and installation artist.

Job Multimedia Producer

Lives In Arts District

I am a wandering Minnesotan who made my way east to attend Harvard College. After graduating, I worked as a high school teacher for semester programs such as The Mountain School in Vershire, Vermont (where I taught English and Chopping Down Trees) and the Vermont Intercutural Semesters in Ladakh, India (where I taught Radio Documentary and Ladakhi Literature.) This past fall I took a break from teaching to attend the Salt Institute for Documentary Studies where I specialized in photography and multimedia storytelling.

My experience at Salt left me in love Portland, where I now live full-time and am actively working as a multimedia producer. I care about forging strong personal connections and I care about creating quality work. 

I am currently working on several projects: a book and installation project about a traditional gravedigger Downeast; and a mutlimedia piece about a local teen with Hodgkins disease (in association with the Portland Radio Group and the Make A Wish Foundation).
