We are thrilled to share the news that AOTR project steward Rachel Reynolds Luster has been named a Creative Community Fellow by National Arts Strategies. Rachel has been a guiding voice since the beginning of AOTR, and she is currently leading a major new project we will be sharing soon.
Rachel, founder of the Oregon County Food Producers and Artisans Co-Op, will have the chance to participate in this fellowship network and conceptualize strategies to expand and scale the Co-Op. As National Arts Strategies describes, Rachel will soon be joining a cohort of inspiring leaders “working at the intersection of culture and community:”
These individuals are using culture to respond to local needs and contribute to healthy neighborhoods. We will give them tools, training and access to others working in this space. This combination will fuel their visions for community change, sparking new ideas and helping put them into action. We will also provide a platform for Fellows to connect their work to their communities and to the field. This will create a global dialogue about the ways in which culture can restore and animate communities.
