Make | Learn | Build – Community Arts & Culture Grants

Round one applications close: March 17, 5 pm PST
Round two applications close: May 19, 5 pm PST

The Make|Learn|Build grant program supports artists, creatives, organizations, and businesses in making work, gaining skills, or building up a business while we get through the pandemic. This new grant program is designed to address the ways the arts community in the tri-county region need support. Awards in each focus area are at the $1,500 or $3,000 level.

Make|Learn|Build grants offer funding for artists and arts-based businesses/organizations in three categories:

  • MAKE: the creation of work in any artistic discipline
  • LEARN: artistic or administrative learning, skill building, or professional development that improve your art practice or business
  • BUILD: a transition or pivot for an arts business or operations, including purchase of equipment or staffing costs

Grant awards will be based on funds available, panel rankings, and RACC’s stated values to serve under-represented communities.

Applicants must live or have a business in Multnomah, Washington, or Clackamas counties.
