Oregon Arts Commission Career Opportunity Deadlines Set!
h3. Career Opportunity Grant Deadlines Set for Oregon Artists
Grants Support Professional and Career Development, Recognize Role of Artists in Creative Economy
The Oregon Arts Commission has set three deadlines for online applications for its Career Opportunity Grants for Oregon professional artists:
August 12, 2013
December 2, 2013
April 7, 2014
Career Opportunity Grants enable artists working in all disciplines to take advantage of unique opportunities to advance their careers. The grants, ranging up to $1,500, can fund artists’ participation in opportunities such as national and international exhibits, travel to trade fairs and film festivals, and attendance at conferences or workshops to expand artists’ professional knowledge base.
In combination with that program, the Arts Commission manages The Ford Family Foundation’s Opportunity Grants restricted to mid-career Oregon visual artists. Reviewed at the same time as the Career Opportunity Grant applications, these additional grants range from $1,500 – $7,500 and aid the eligible artists in the creation, production or exhibition of their work.
Applications are accepted only online:
Past Career Opportunity Grants have supported artist residencies in the U.S. and in Oregon, book tours and conference presentations by writers, and travel to exhibitions and trade shows.
More information on the work of prior Career Opportunity grantees is available on the Creative Oregon section of the Commission’s website: http://www.oregonartscommission.org/creative-oregon

The Oregon Arts Commission provides leadership, funding and arts programs through its grants, special initiatives and services. Nine commissioners, appointed by the Governor, determine arts needs and establish policies for public support of the arts. The Arts Commission became part of Business Oregon (formerly Oregon Economic and Community Development Department) in 1993 in recognition of the expanding role the arts play in the broader social, economic and educational arenas of Oregon communities. In 2003, the Oregon legislature moved the operations of the Oregon Cultural Trust to the Arts Commission, streamlining operations and making use of the Commission’s expertise in grant-making, arts and cultural information and community cultural development.
The Arts Commission is supported with general funds appropriated by the Oregon legislature, federal funds from the National Endowment for the Arts and funds from the Oregon Cultural Trust.
The Ford Family Foundation, established in 1957 by Kenneth W. and Hallie E. Ford, is the sole funder of this Visual Arts Program. However, it actively seeks to partner with Oregon’s leading arts organizations to help implement program elements and to leverage its funding with that of other state and national resources. The Foundation’s Mission is “successful citizens and vital rural communities” in Oregon and Siskiyou County, California. It is headquartered in Roseburg, Oregon, with a Scholarship office in Eugene.
