ABOUT THE LEADERSHIP INCUBATOR PROGRAM
A 2018 study revealed that people in Washington County, Oregon have fewer opportunities to access arts and culture services and experiences than in other urban areas around the state. TVC created the Arts and Culture Leadership Incubator program to help support emerging and diverse arts and culture leaders who are interested in serving our local community.
Part leadership development, part business incubator, 5-10 applicants from traditionally underrepresented populations* will be selected to participate in the second annual cohort of the Leadership Incubator. Participants will be individual artists and cultural advocates residing in Washington County who are interested in building creative projects with a social activism component. A team of Faculty members will lead weekend workshops from February-April 2021 as well as serve as mentors to the participants. The program will culminate in a Digital Showcase of the artists’ projects based on their learnings and collaborations during the program. Information about last year’s Leadership Incubator can be found at https://tvcreates.org/
