With so much pressure to find work you're "passionate about" these days—what does the process of discernment actually look like? Join host Richard Dahlstrom and the co-founder of the Taproot Theatre Company, Scott Nolte, as they discuss how Scott found his calling and sustained it for over 40 years.
Scott is the co-founder and former Producing Artistic Director Taproot Theatre Company until retiring after 44 years at the end of 2020. Over the course of 40 years he directed over 200 main stage and touring productions and oversaw the artistic development of Taproot’s programs and mission. Scott has also served on the board or as an advisor to many arts and nonprofit organizations. As a teacher, he was an adjunct professor at the Eduardo Turral Cultural Association (Leon, Spain) and Seattle Pacific University’s School of Fine and Performing Arts. Scott and his wife (and fellow TTC founder) Pamela Nolte were named Alumni of the Year by Seattle Pacific University in 2011. The Noltes are both second-generation Seattleites, and have two adult children. In 2018 Scott hiked 800 kms on the Santiago de Compostela in Spain—which you can read about online.
And if you're in the Greater Puget Sound Region, you can join Richard and Bethany Community Church on an Ancient Paths trip in the Summer of 2021. These trips provide opportunities to help discern your calling and next steps in life. Find out more online.
