The Right Brain Initiative is a community partnership working to transform learning for all children through the arts, creativity, innovation and whole-brain thinking. Right Brain achieves this goal by connecting classroom teachers with local artists in a variety of arts disciplines, and by helping them build creative learning experiences that directly connect to core subjects including language arts, social studies, science and math. In 2014-15 the Initiative will serve nearly 20,000 students, Kindergarten through 8th grade, across seven school districts in Clackamas, Multnomah and Washington Counties.
RACC and Young Audiences value diversity, equity, and inclusivity, and The Right Brain Initiative is committed to ensuring that its staff and artists reflect the diversity of the students we serve. We encourage applications from candidates who can contribute to the diversity of our workforce, and artists working in culturally specific art forms.
These and other local job opportunities in the arts are also listed on RACC’s comprehensive jobs board at racc.org/resources/jobs.
