Our hit-and-run recap: Show + Tell 2010

June 30th, 2010 by Current CM

 

Thanks to all 200-ish of you who joined us last week at our Show + Tell 2010 event, which took place at the elegantly, urbanely cavernous Leftbank Annex. As our annual end-of-the-school-year celebration, we took this opportunity to provide as many look, ma! moments we could muster and provide a hearty thank you to the many, many individuals who helped us make it happen.

Show + Tell also serves as an excuse to launch our annual report, and a new multimedia exhibit that will travel throughout the tri-county region (we will talk much more about this in upcoming weeks). 

Event attendees, including Gail Hayes Davis, Executive Director of Young Audiences of Oregon & SW Washington (center), viewed the beta version of our traveling exhibit

Perhaps most exciting of all, we were also able to provide to our attendees with a breaking announcement (pre-press release!) about the Portland area’s exciting new partnership with the Kennedy Center’s Any Given Child intiative. So, as we looked back on our accomplishments from 2009-10, we were able to then look forward to an exciting 2010-11. This partnership with the Kennedy Center, an international arts leader, will help our region create a long-term plan to assure equitable arts education for K-8 students. (Again, this is turn of events is so big for Right Brain and for the Portland area, you can expect to read much more about this in the coming weeks.) 

Just in case you weren’t able to join us, we thought we’d help you catch up here:

Show + Tell was planned in conjunction with our first annual Imagine This: A Seminar on Bringing Creativity to Classrooms, which took place June 21-23.
