Creative Heights initiative

Dear community member,

I’m pleased to announce that applications are now open for Oregon Community Foundation’s Creative Heights initiative. We invite you to learn more about this opportunity, apply if you are eligible, and share with your networks. Applications open on January 4, 2023, and are due at 5 p.m. PST February 15, 2023.

Creative Heights provides opportunities for artists and culture bearers to stretch their creative capacity, share new works and test new ideas. The initiative aims to increase Oregon’s cultural visibility and vitality while supporting unique opportunities for Oregonians to experience innovative arts and culture. Up to $1 million in projects will be funded annually with grants from $10,000 to $100,000 per project.

For more information on the scope of proposals sought, eligibility, application process, review criteria, and FAQs, please visit the Creative Heights program webpage. An informational webinar will be held online on Wednesday, January 18, 2023, at 1 p.m. PST to provide a program overview, walk applicants through the application, and answer any questions. If you are interested in attending, please register in advance here. If you are unable to attend the informational webinar, a recording will be available on our website shortly after January 18.

Warmest regards,

Jerry Tischleder
Senior Program Officer, Arts and Culture
