Lane Arts Council announces $56,000 in grants to arts organizations and arts projects in the Eugene area. The Community Arts Grant Program is funded by the City of Eugene Cultural Services Division and administered by Lane Arts Council.
The Community Arts Grants help ensure diverse and accessible arts opportunities and experiences for Eugene artists, audiences and participants.
This year nine community arts organizations, with annual budgets above $100,000, will receive Program Grants and 16 projects will receive Project Grants. Project grants will fund: participatory ballet experiences; theatre productions; music, writing, and film festivals; exhibitions; multidisciplinary integrated arts projects; slam poetry and dance performances; and various workshops.
One of the projects is a theatre production that provides children with autism the opportunity to perform and learn about theatre. Another celebrates women in music and art through the month-long GRRRLZ ROCK Music & Arts Festival.
