RACC seeking proposals for artistic projects

The Regional Arts and Culture Council invites nonprofit organizations and individual artists in Clackamas, Multnomah and Washington counties to submit proposals for artistic projects and cultural events planned for calendar year 2014.

Intent to apply forms must be submitted online at racc.org/grantsonline by 5 p.m. on Aug. 7.

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 Aug. 28 with deadlines in October.

Approximately $585,000 is available for projects in 2014, with awards ranging from $1,000 to $6,000 each. RACC encourages submissions from new, emerging and established artists alike. All eligible proposals will be grouped by discipline and adjudicated by a panel of community volunteers with interest and experience in arts and cultural programming. For more information on how panelists are selected, visit bit.ly/9yioo8.

Guidelines and other important materials — including a list of projects that were funded in 2013 — are available online at racc.org/grants.
