OCF’s investment in Oregon arts and culture includes strategies to create vibrant and accessible arts communities of all sizes throughout our state. Building on great strides in the arts in 2018, OCF is implementing exciting enhancements for 2019 and beyond that address the opportunity gap through arts and education.

CREATIVE HEIGHTS

To help artists and cultural organizations stretch their creative capacity, share new works and test new ideas, OCF is awarding up to $1 million per year through the Creative Heights initiative.

SMALL ARTS & CULTURE GRANTS

To support Oregon’s smallest arts and culture organizations, OCF is awarding more than $1 million over three years to organizations in every region of our state.

STUDIO TO SCHOOL

To increase access to arts education for Oregon schoolchildren, OCF awarded $5 million over five years through the Studio to School initiative. The awards provided multiyear support for 18 partnerships between community arts organizations and schools. The initiative sunsets in 2019.
