The City of Hillsboro Cultural Arts Division has partnered with the City of Beaverton Arts Program and Tualatin Valley Creates to produce the Creative Impact Workshop Series, a series of professional development opportunities for Washington County artists and cultural organizations. The workshop series aims to connect artists and cultural organizers with regional grant makers, to help artists articulate their goals, and to further their professional development. The workshop series runs January 16 through June 2, 2019, with events taking place at assorted venues in Beaverton and Hillsboro.
The Creative Impact Workshop Series kicks off with the Washington County Arts & Culture Grants Panel, January 16, 4 – 6 p.m. at the Brookwood Library in Hillsboro. Artists and cultural organizers are invited to join representatives from the Hillsboro Arts & Culture Council, Cultural Coalition of Washington County, Regional Arts & Culture Council, Miller Foundation, and Precipice Fund for this free panel discussion to learn about local grant opportunities specifically for arts and culture programming in Washington County. Attendees will be able to determine which opportunities fit best with their organization and programs and will get the chance to ask questions of grant makers. The panel discussion is free, but RSVP is requested. To RSVP for this event, visit Hillsboro-Oregon.gov/HACC.
The workshop series continues with: “Fund Your Creative Project: Grant Writing for Artists,” a hands-on workshop led by artist coach and author, Gigi Rosenberg, on January 26 and February 9; “Using Data to Tell Your Story: Research Resources for the Creative Industry” on March 16; “Welcoming Diverse Audiences: From Invitation to Engagement” on April 10; “Kickstart Your Community Mural!: How to Plan and Create a Mural in the Public Realm” on May 4; and “Arts Advice: A Day of Pro-Bono Consulting” on June 2.
