With funding from Governor Kulongoski's CHAMP II initiative, the Oregon Arts Commission announces the first quarterly deadline of Aug. 13, in the continuation of its important Career Opportunity grant program for individual artists.
Initiated in 2007, Career Opportunity Grants provide Oregon artists with support of up to $1,500 to enable them to take advantage of specific opportunities that will enhance their arts careers through the development of arts, business or professional skills; an expanded marketing capacity; and/or other concrete efforts to advance the nature or quality of their artwork.
Since 2007, Career Opportunity grants have enabled artists to present their work at national and international art fairs; to ship new work to exhibitions in the United States and Europe; to record and digitally create new works; and to have access to studios and foundries to create prototypes for installation work.
Applications are accepted on quarterly deadlines of:
August 13, 2009
November 12, 2009
February 11, 2010
May 18, 2010.
Applications may be downloaded from the Commission's website: http://www.oregonartscommission.org/grants/commission_grant_programs.php Following the first deadline, applicants are advised to confirm the availability of funds as this program is highly competitive. The grants, funded through the Commission's Creative Oregon Initiative, expand the capacity of Oregon's artists, who often work as independent small businesses, to contribute to Oregon's economy in both urban and rural areas.
More information about the Oregon Arts Commission is available online at: www.oregonartscommission.org
