About the Incubator Program
A 2018 study revealed that people in Washington County, OR 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 challenge, empower and inspire emerging and diverse arts and culture leaders.
Part-leadership development, part-business incubator, the Arts and Culture Leadership Incubator supports local artists and cultural advocates in building a thriving, inclusive cultural and creative environment for our community.
Tualatin Valley Creates (TVC) is seeking artists and cultural advocates for our second annual Arts & Culture Leadership Incubator program! Applicants should reside in Washington County, OR and have a passion for building creative projects that incorporate social activism.
The Incubator Program is free to apply to and participate in, and those who complete the program will receive a $500 stipend to help advance their work.
Interactive arts-entrepreneurial training workshop topics will include strategizing personal/professional goals, small business practices, collaborative public art efforts, community activism practices, self-promotion methods and the use of social media, finding funding and grant sources, and the importance of relevant critical writing and artists statements.
You will be part of a small, diverse cohort of peers who are turning arts and culture visions into realities. Find the inspiration and tools you need to overcome barriers to realize and sustain an artistic profession. All while fostering meaningful engagement within your community.
This year’s cohort will include up to 10 individuals from Washington County. We especially encourage applicants from traditionally under-served populations. Traditionally under-served populations in Washington County include people under 40, people of color, LGBTQ+, people experiencing income disparity, and people with disabilities, among others.
