From 2009-2015, I served as an Executive Director and Event Producer for Colored Pencils Art and Culture Council with a great team of diverse group of people which I still continue to work with.
We offered a program of 6 performances from different ethnic groups each event. We partnered with businesses, government & social service agencies and diverse communities organizations to create once a month events at various venues in all corners of the city. The events were supported through grant funding by RACC, Oregon Arts Commission, United Way, etc.
