Meet Cultural Arts Funders at the Library

Thursday, February 23, 2017

Meet Oregon Cultural Trust and others to learn about grant opportunities.

Join Oregon Cultural Trust Manager Aili Schreiner and colleagues from the Trust’s Cultural Partners — Oregon Arts Commission, Oregon Heritage, Oregon Humanities and the Oregon State Historic Preservation Office — to learn about funding opportunities, how to apply, and more.

 From 1:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., “Meet Cultural/Arts Funders and Partners.” Explains Schreiner, “It’s kind of like ‘speed-dating’ for cultural nonprofits and artists to meet funders and programming agencies.”

From 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., the Cultural Trust will host a County Cultural Coalition Roundtable, where Lane County cultural coalitions can network about the coming year.

 Organizations encouraged to attend “Conversations with Funders” include libraries, arts organizations, museums, cultural centers, historical societies, arts alliances, literary groups, and heritage organizations. Individual artists and other interested members of the public are also welcome.

Eugene is one of nine communities statewide where this event will be held. “There are more than 1,450 cultural nonprofits serving Oregonians,” said Schreiner. “We want to make sure they know about the grant funds that are here to support them.”
