Arts project and Cultural events Grant Applications due August 7

The Regional Arts & Culture Council (RACC) invites nonprofit organizations and individual artists in Multnomah, Washington and Clackamas Counties to submit proposals for artistic projects and cultural events planned for calendar year 2014.  “Intent to Apply” forms must be submitted online – http://racc.org/GrantsOnline – by 5:00 p.m. on August 7, 2013. 


RACC Project Grants support a wide range of artistic activities throughout the Portland tri-county region. To be eligible, projects must involve the creation or presentation of a performance, exhibit, or other work of art that is available to the general public.  Proposals must address one of the following objectives:

  • Artistic Focus: These projects will demonstrate high artistic quality, innovation, creativity in programming and excellence in artist selection.
  • Community Participation: These projects support cultural and artistic programs with high levels of community participation. Projects in this category should impact participants by providing them with a greater sense of self, family, community and place through learning and participating in their own artmaking experience.

A third category of Project Grants are specifically for artists working in schools. “Arts-in-Schools” applications and guidelines will be available after August 28th with deadlines in October.
