Juice

 

Nominations are now open for Juice 2018

RACC is ready to hear what act of art rocked your world! Which courageous investment in creativity rendered you speechless?

At Juice 2018 we will shine a light on art and culture at its most potent, most impactful, most ingenious and most game-changing.

Tell us who or what really moved you. Be it a group, individual, business, partnership, funder, organization or maybe something we haven’t considered. Who or what in Multnomah, Washington and Clackamas counties went above and beyond, made you think differently or changed a community using art and culture?

Winning stories will be filmed and shared in front of Juice’s 400+ audience. Honorees will receive their award from the Juice stage followed by many months of glory.

What is Juice?

Juice is the annual breakfast event put on by the Regional Art and Culture Council where members of the business and arts community come together to celebrate outstanding achievement in expression, support and service in arts and culture in the tri-county area.

Juice was born out of the event known as Arts Breakfast of Champions.



Take a look back at last year’s event:
