Clair Bright

Clair Bright joined the Creativity Explored Board in 2014. She has worked in technology media in the Bay Area since 1995 and since 2003 as Vice President & Publisher at San Francisco-based Extension Media.

A graduate of University San Francisco, Clair earned her Masters degree in Nonprofit Management in 2011. Clair and her husband Jeff have lived in the Mission Dolores neighborhood the past 15 years.

From childhood I was raised with an appreciation for the arts that saw past the commerce and hierarchical nature of art markets to recognize the incredibly deep and vital human emotions that compel human beings to make and share art. I believe that the ability to express oneself through art is a basic human right that society can only benefit through supporting.

It is a great honor to expand my fellowship with like-minded individuals of all ages and backgrounds who support the Mission & Goals of Creativity Explored, and are dedicating their energies and personal resources toward the organization’s success, growth and stability.
