The Regional Arts & Culture Council serves artists, arts organizations, schools, and residents in the Oregon counties of Clackamas, Multnomah, and Washington with the goal of fostering an environment where arts and culture flourish and prosper.
In support of this mission, RACC is accepting applications for its Project Grants program. Through the program, grants will be awarded in support of a specific art presentation, exhibit, produced program, or event that is fully executed within a specified timeline and made available to the public.
Grants of up to $7,000 will be awarded for projects in the following categories:
Artistic Focus — Projects that demonstrate high artistic quality, innovation, creativity in programming and artist selection, and demonstrated ability by the artist or organization.
Arts Equity & Access — Projects that support arts programs and services that involve direct community participation, including communities that are underserved, arts education projects, arts conferences or workshops, and community fairs and festivals.
RACC also offers Catalyst awards of $3,000 as well as staff support to applicants who have not previously received Project Grant funding.
Optional information sessions will be offered to interested applicants in February ahead of the February 19 deadline.
To be eligible, applicants must be an individual artist or nonprofit arts organization located in the Oregon counties of Multnomah, Washington, or Clackamas.
See the Regional Arts and Culture Council website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
