Roll up your sleeves and attend a Creative Capacity roundtable.
We are hosting a series of smaller discussions on specific topics
raised at the Creative Capacity Townhall in June. So,
us for some roundtables on September 17th and September 25th from
6:30 to 8 p.m. at City Hall, 1221 SW Fourth Avenue.
In the interest of facilitating discussion, we're breaking the
conversations out into these four admittedly broad threads:
- For-profit creative businesses
- Non-profit creative organizations
- Arts education , see Arts Partners below
Space is limited to around 50 people per thread, and both nights
will focus on the same questions. Please RSVP at http://creativecapacity.eventbrite.com.
If we fill up, we'll do it again soon!
Roundtable guiding questions:
If you missed the Creative
Capacity Townhall, watch it here.
- What are your current needs & priorities?
- Do you think we have the resources today (time, people, money) to
- How would you better use our current resources?
- If we had more resources, how would you prioritize using them?
- Any research/topics you have!
Creative Capacity Steering Committee
We want to grow the capacity of the creative community to advocate
for more resources through either voters at the ballot or with decision
makers at budget time. How we find and use those resources to grow
and strengthen the community is up to you.
We need your help. We're looking
for folks interested in serving on a steering committee of between
30 to 50 people to help guide this effort.
You should be: a) actively engaged in the creative community b)
willing to meet every other month for a few hours during the day
c) unafraid to share your opinion d) unafraid of compromise.
Think that's you? Email a little something about yourself to firstname.lastname@example.org.
There will be lots of other opportunities to engage with the effort
as well, we promise.
Creativity starts in the classroom.
How can we better deliver arts education to every child in the
region? The Regional Arts & Culture Council is helping convene
Arts Partners, a new vision of collaboration and mentorship to bring
arts learning to all students in the Portland Metropolitan region.
