Director's Biography

Lynn Fisher brings a breadth of experience to performing arts management.  Active in the field for more than 20 years, she created Frontera Arts in 2009 to help bridge the performing arts in the Americas.   Lynn specializes in project management, booking, producing and consulting for U.S. and Latin American performing arts and arts organizations.  A fluent Spanish speaker, she has worked extensively with Latino artists and communities in the U.S. as well as in Mexico with Mexican contemporary performing artists.  She has extensive experience booking, managing and consulting with performing artists in theater, dance and music.  She has produced U.S. and international tours and residencies, in addition to doing free lance booking.

 During her career she has conducted educational and professional development workshops and served on panels and committees for arts organizations, including Centro Nacional de Artes/ENAME/ US Embassy, Western Arts Alliance, North American Performing Arts Manager and Agents, Arts Northwest, City of Austin Theater Advisory Panel and ArtReach Dallas among others.  Lynn served on the board of  Dance Umbrella in Austin, Texas for five years. 

Lynn studied theater at University of Denver and received her B.A. from Lake Forest College in Sociology and Anthropology.  She began in the performing arts as an actress and singer in Chicago and continues to sing and perform.

Having worked together on a variety of projects, I’ve always admired Lynn’s enthusiasm for cultural exchange. Her commitment to building long term partnerships with artists in Mexico should be a model for our field. — Joe Randel, Director, ArtesAméricas, University of Texas At Austin, Texas Performing Arts

Lynn Fisher has been a leader in the performing arts for many, many years and her passion to increase knowledge in the United States regarding Latin American artists and their work, especially in Mexico is well known. Way before Latino arts, artists and aesthetics, as well as residencies between the U.S. and Mexico, for example, began to proliferate in both countries, presenters and artists have always looked to Lynn and Frontera Arts to make these projects happen in a respectful and sustainable manner. Thanks Frontera Arts.  We are truly grateful! — Cristina King Miranda, Directora General/ General Director, FMX Festival de México en el Centro Histórico, Mexico City, Mexico
