Cultural Trust brings road show to Beaverton
The Oregon Cultural Trust and its statewide partners will make a stop in Beaverton this month, part of a statewide tour to discuss more than $5 million in available funding.
"Conversations with Funders and Partners," a 14-stop state tour. Attendees will learn about grant programs available from multiple grantmakers and will have the opportunity to discuss their projects and programming. Other statewide programming resources also will be presented.
Representatives from the Statewide Partners — the Oregon Arts Commission, Oregon Heritage, Oregon Humanities and the Oregon State Historic Preservation Office — will be joined by Oregon Cultural Trust Manager Aili Schreiner and counterparts from The Oregon Community Foundation and Portland's Regional Arts and Culture Council for some of the events.
The Beaverton stop is set for 4 to 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 8, Meeting Room A, Beaverton City Library, 12375 S.W. Fifth St. Other stops will include Portland, Oregon City, Eugene, the coast and central and southern Oregon.
Organizations encouraged to attend include libraries, arts organizations, museums, cultural centers, historical societies, arts alliances, literary groups and heritage organizations. All cultural nonprofit organizations are welcome.
"There are more than 1,450 cultural nonprofits serving Oregonians," Schreiner said. "We want to make sure they know about the grant funds and significant programming resources that are here to support them."
Among the grant opportunities discussed will be the Cultural Trust's 2018 Cultural Development Grants; grant guidelines will be posted on the Trust website Monday, Feb. 5, with an April 13 application deadline.
The Cultural Trust's Cultural Development Grants recognize and support significant cultural programs and projects through four grant categories: access; preservation; creativity; and capacity.
