The festival is run by the Portland Tango Association, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that besides the festival sustains other activities within the Portland Tango community, like scholarships for local people interested in learning or perfecting tango and updates to the Portland tango website.
On her sixth year of organizing the festival, Luisa Zini Fortuna put together a new team to tackle the challenges connected with putting together such a big and complex event.
Core group of Organizers PTF2022:
- Luisa Zini Fortuna
- Art Fortuna
- Greg Frost
- Tanya Ky
- GG Rowe
This year we have the great fortune of having two new members joining the core organizing team with lots of expertise in project management and data base programming. GG particularly is keeping all of us on track by managing our time and keeping us honest concerning our commitments.
We meet bimonthly mostly online as the pandemic has taught all of us to do.
Since we decided to move the festival to the Marriott Hotel things will be a bit different organizational wise and hopefully magically beautiful and fun in actuality.
