On Tuesday, October 20th, The Right Brain Initiative was honored at the prestigious Light a Fire Awards, Portland Monthly’s annual recognition of some of the most dynamic nonprofits in the city. Right Brain was granted the Game-Changing Project award, which recognizes innovative collaboration between community projects generating systemic and impactful change.

We were so thrilled that arts integration and creative thinking in the classroom were given the opportunity to shine at this year’s event, alongside some other truly remarkable organizations and individuals!
