Brain Storm explores the genesis of innovation with eight of the region's most original thinkers.
Now in its second year, Portland Monthly and OMSI join forces to celebrate and investigate inspiration and creativity in the many disciplines for which Oregon has a growing reputation: design, sustainability, the arts, education, health, technology, food and drink, engineering, and manufacturing.
Brain Storm asks the questions: Who among us is changing the world? How are they doing it? What are their wellsprings of creativity?
