The Community Arts Grant is seeking applications through May 6, for accessible, affordable and inclusive projects for local communities with limited exposure to the arts due to ethnicity, economics or disability.
The grant program is funded by the City of Eugene Cultural Services Division and administered by Lane Arts Council. More than $50,000 will be awarded this year.
“We are grateful for the City of Eugene’s ongoing investment in the arts. These projects make Eugene a creative and dynamic place to live,” says Liora Sponko, executive director of Lane Arts Council.
The Community Arts Grant recognizes the expanding role that the arts play in the broader, cultural, social, educational and economic areas of community life. Grant funding will help to ensure diverse and accessible arts opportunities and experiences for Eugene artists, audiences and participants.
Competitive applications include partnerships between arts organizations and community-based organizations that strengthen communities by connecting arts with local issues and opportunities. Project strategies may include events or programs that highlight the art and culture of a community, events or programs that give under-served artists increased outlets to promote their work, and programs that serve and provide access to under-served and under-represented communities.
