Creative Heights provides opportunities for artists and cultural creatives to stretch their creative capacity, share new works and test new ideas. The initiative aims to increase Oregon’s cultural visibility and vitality while supporting unique opportunities for Oregonians to experience innovative arts and culture.
Creative Heights grants are for the creation and/or presentation of new and innovative performances, exhibitions, programs, and other works of art and culture. OCF is interested in reviewing proposals for a range of funding levels and timelines to best serve the specific needs of proposed projects. Project funding may be spent over a period of two years and can support any artistic or cultural discipline, including visual, dance, folk & traditional arts, film/video/media, literary arts, museum exhibitions, humanities, music, theatre & performance arts, history & heritage, and multidisciplinary or emerging fields.
Grant funding may be used for commissioning fees; pay for artists, curators, and scholars; costs associated with research, rehearsals, workshops; promotion; design and production; dissemination and documentation; and other direct costs related to creation, presentation, or exhibition. Preference will be given to projects that are not within three months of completion upon receiving the award in August 2020.
The intent of the Creative Heights initiative is to offer risk capital to pursue bold artistic ideas, therefore OCF is open to a range of projects outside the stated guidelines. Highly competitive proposals will likely demonstrate the capacity for high artistic achievement, innovation in execution, and feasibility to realize the project goals.
