Tualatin Valley Creates Arts & Culture Leadership Incubator is open to artists and cultural advocates residing in Washington County, OR. The Incubator Program is free to apply to and participate in, and those who complete the program will receive a $500 stipend to advance their work. Applicants should have a passion for building creative projects that incorporate social activism.
TVC’s unique Leadership Incubator program bridges a critical opportunity gap in Washington County, where residents have less access to arts and culture services and experiences compared to other urban areas around the state. TVC has assembled a strong, diverse Faculty Team of four regional arts and culture leaders to provide 1-on-1 mentorship to participants.
Small, intensive skill-building workshops, led by Faculty Members and guest speakers, cover topics ranging from the business aspects of being an artist to challenging methodologies around what it takes to be a community leader. Participants create lasting connections during the program through peer networking, learning, and a focused collaboration on community activism.
Those interested must complete and submit the application on the TVC website by December 1, 2020. Artists from underserved communities, including (but not limited to) rural communities and communities of color, as well as artists with disabilities, are especially encouraged to apply.
This program is made possible through the support of community partners, including The Collins Foundation, The Oregon Community Foundation, Oregon Cultural Trust, and Washington County, Oregon.
