Indexical is thrilled to announce Michael Masaru Flora as the next Executive Director of the organization. A crucial part of Indexical since 2021, Michael helped establish Indexical’s performance space through its first two seasons, serving as the organization’s Technical Manager over 100 performances, training and establishing a production staff and working directly with artists to produce and realize ambitious projects. As a curator, Michael has continued a workshop series established in 2021 and presented a festival Nada: Sound, Systems, and Psychoacoustics in 2022. Michael brings a background in DIY organizing as both a curator and artist through more than decade of activity under the collective platform Nada and as an active computer musician. In addition to his musical activities, he is an active board member of the Hub for Sustainable Living in Santa Cruz, housing the Bike Church, PedX, SubRosa, and other organizations, and has lived in Ben Lomond since 2020.
Supporting this transition, we are delighted to announce substantial support from the California Arts Council and the WHH Foundation. In addition, Indexical’s Board of Directors has committed $6,000 in matching funds toward our 2023-24 fundraising campaign.
