TVC Incubator – Learning Intensive

Deadline September 30, 2020

This is a collaborative learning intensive. Participants will receive a $500 stipend after successful completion of the 6 sessions and Showcase.

Tualatin Valley Creates (TVC) is seeking artists and cultural advocates for our second annual Arts & Culture Leadership Incubator program! Part-leadership development, part-business incubator, the Leadership Incubator supports local artists and cultural advocates in building a thriving, inclusive cultural and creative environment for our Washington County community.

Applicants should reside in Washington County, OR and have a passion for building creative projects that incorporate social activism. Take your practice to the next level by applying today!

A 2018 study revealed that people in Washington County, Oregon have fewer opportunities to access
arts and culture services and experiences than in other urban areas around the state. TVC created the
Arts and Culture Leadership Incubator program to help support emerging and diverse arts and culture
leaders who are interested in serving our local community.

Up to 10 applicants from traditionally underrepresented populations* will be selected to participate in the second annual cohort of the Leadership Incubator. Participants will be individual artists and cultural advocates residing in Washington County who are interested in building creative projects with a social activism component. A team of faculty members who are Creative Industry professionals will lead weekend workshops from February-April 2021 as well as serve as mentors to the participants. The program will culminate in a public Showcase highlighting the artists’ projects, learnings, and collaborations built during the program. Information about last year’s Leadership Incubator can be found at

*Traditionally under-served populations in Washington County include people under 40, people of color, LGBTQ+, people experiencing income disparity, and people with disabilities, among others
