Grants ranging from $500 to $5,000 to Oregon independent unincorporated entities, as well as state-level nonprofit organizations, to support collaborative visual arts projects, alternative spaces, and collectives in the metro areas of Astoria, Eugene, and Portland. Eligible initiatives will include a public component.
The Precipice Fund seeks to support new and existing projects emblematic of Oregon’s independent on-the-ground art scene. Through this application and proposal process, the Fund looks forward to learning more about the applicant's current contributions to the local art community, and to consider ideas for future projects that will enhance the vibrancy, advance the rigor, and push the boundaries of alternative, experimental, and collaborative visual art practice in the region.
Precipice Fund awards grants to visual art projects. Works in performance or other media are only eligible if the project clearly incorporates visual art elements at its core, and/or engages visual art discourse or an expanded definition of visual art practice. Film projects may be eligible in their creation phase, and if they clearly demonstrate a connection to visual art practices /communities. The Fund is open to innovation, experimentation, and risk-taking in the field and is supportive of diverse approaches to visual art-making. For the Fund's definition of Visual Art, see https://www.pica.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/Precipice-Fund-Info-Session-Slides.pdf#page=11.
The Precipice Fund prioritizes projects that:
Projects must be collaborative (carried out by at least two individuals). A single artist’s project may be eligible if it is highly participatory, collaborative, or engages multiple publics via production/presentation.
