A big THANK YOU to Oregon Arts Commission from all of us at Clackamas County Arts Alliance and our Youth Arts for Change program for the Arts Builds Communities grant!

Art rallying community around a shared need is the focus of 34 Oregon projects awarded $200,000 in 2015 Arts Build Communities grants from the Oregon Arts Commission.
Vacant downtown storefronts become celebrations of community in Corvallis; incarcerated youth fulfill treatment requirements by sharing their stories through pictures or performance in Clackamas County;
