Lane Arts Council accepting applications through May 8th
The Community Arts Grant is seeking applications for projects that emphasize accessibility, and provide unique programming that takes place in the City of Eugene. The grant program is funded by the City of Eugene Cultural Services Division and administered by 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.
“Minority Voices Theatre was in its first year when it received a Community Arts Grant for our Now I Am Your Neighbor project,” states co-founder Carol Dennis. “This grant helped us give voice to immigrants living in Lane County, and helped establish MVT as a valuable community asset.”
Competitive projects emphasize accessibility, and demonstrate strategies for community impact and engaging new and diverse audiences. This includes partnerships between arts organizations and community-based organizations that strengthen communities by connecting arts with local issues and opportunities. Project strategies may include, but are not limited to, utilizing public spaces, lowering barriers to entry, encouraging partnerships, highlighting local multicultural traditions and histories, building existing and developing new audiences, providing arts learning experiences, and providing access and inclusion to underserved and underrepresented communities.
