Portland Mayoral Forum
Pacific Northwest Science and Technology Foundation and the MFA in Collaborative Design program present a forum with mayoral candidates Eileen Brady, Charlie Hales, and Jefferson Smith.
Portland has a reputation as a center for creativity, technology, and design. From software to apparel to green technology, the opportunities for developing a vibrant creative economy are expanding. What specific actions can the City of Portland and our next mayor take to support and enhance Portland’s science, technology, and creative communities? The Pacific Northwest Science and Technology Foundation and the MFA Collaborative Design program at Pacific Northwest College of Art (PNCA) held a forum with 2012 Portland mayoral candidates Eileen Brady, Charlie Hales, and Jefferson Smith and moderated a conversation on what Portland’s next mayor should and can do to support the science-tech-creative sector in Portland.
