BLUR PORTLAND: A visioning event on September 29

How has art and culture made a difference in your business and your life?

Do you see the lines of our world of work/life/art blurring?

What should Portland look like when arts and business thrive?

What steps can we take to accelerate that?

RACC’s new Business Committee for the Arts (BCA) is planning a visioning event for local arts, business, and political leaders interested in better understanding the future role of arts and culture to help our communities thrive. At this event, participants will share their visions for, experiences with, and challenges to making healthy communities through the blurring of business, arts and culture.

This is not a fund-raising event, it is an action-raising event.

GOAL ONE: Help arts and business leaders and the public better understand and celebrate arts and culture as methods for creating healthy communities.

GOAL TWO: Generate a community dialogue around the creation and sustainability of healthy, vibrant, creative communities.

GOAL THREE: Activate a diverse set of programming and partnerships spanning public, private, and nonprofit sectors.

GOAL FOUR: Lay the groundwork for a collective movement forward over the next decade and beyond.

Thursday, September 29 from 4:00 – 7:30 p.m.

Lagunitas Brewing Company, 237 NE Broadway, Portland OR 97232
