The Art Lives Here: Place and Neighborhood-Based Projects program aims to support and nurture community-led place and neighborhood-based art projects that activate and enliven publicly-accessible places and enhance the quality of life in Beaverton’s eleven neighborhoods.
Project duration may vary and could be a one-time placemaking event, performance or other artwork installation that is on display temporarily or permanently. Proposals will be considered on a case-by-case basis and can include but are not limited to: design interventions, community projects, festivals, performances, public art, streetscaping, landscaping, and functioning public amenities such as creative wayfinding, decorative benches, tables and bicycle racks.
Applicants should provide detailed information on what opportunities for which they are seeking funding, the challenges or site conditions that are being impacted and what this project would contribute to the residents of Beaverton. In short, we are asking applicants to get to the heart of why this project is relevant to the community and public space for which it was imagined, and what is hoped to be achieved both short and long-term if this project is awarded a grant.
