While developing my Capstone/Thesis project (Bridgelab) at PNCA I have been researching new education models and this is one particularly interesting and innovative program. I’d like to develop something similar in Portland through PNCA. I see possibilities to connect projects managed by the primary regional arts organizations (RACC and OAC) with students at PNCA through Bridgelab in a model that provides experiential learning for the students which yields experience, network development and community involvement. On the other end, professional artists working on the projects would have access to creative and willing volunteers from the community as well as art and design students hungry for applied learning opportunities.
