The Right Brain Initiative was established in the Portland, Oregon tri-county area with a vision to transform learning for all children through the arts, creativity, innovation, and whole-brain thinking. The program was operated by Regional Arts & Culture Council (RACC), which builds support for a strong arts and culture community in the area. After twelve years, it was determined that the Right Brain Initiative would be a better fit under the the management of Young Audiences of Oregon & SW Washington (YA), which was already serving as the program’s Residency Partner. YA is the leading local provider of youth arts programs in the region, giving creative learning experiences to more than 70,000 young people each year. With the support of a grant from the SeaChange-Lodestar Fund for Nonprofit Collaboration, RACC transferred the Right Brain Initiative program to YA.
