Deadline: Monday, March 12, 2018 at 5:00 p.m.
On behalf of the Hillsboro Arts and Culture Endowment, the City of Hillsboro Cultural Arts Division invites professional artists or artist teams to apply for the Hillsboro Artist-in-Our-Community Project. Community engagement is at the heart of this artistic project, which is open to all creative practices including, but not limited to: visual and performing arts, literary arts, cultural arts, architecture, film, culinary arts, gaming, photography/photojournalism, creative technology, craft and folk traditions, woodworking, design, music and fabric arts. The total 2018 project funding, including artist stipend and materials is $5,000.
The selected artist or artist team, having made significant contributions in their work as artist(s) and known for their ability to engage the community, will implement creative, inclusive and community-engaged projects, activities and/or events throughout Hillsboro. Through their creative practice they will inspire Hillsboro individuals, organizations, businesses and creative communities; reflect upon the richness and diversity of the people, locations and traditions of Hillsboro; and share those experiences with the broader Hillsboro community.
The Hillsboro Artist-in-Our-Community Project should produce an outcome suitable for a broad general audience of all ages including young children (PG rated), and be appropriate for presentation in public and government facilities. This includes outcomes such as, but not limited to, a temporary installation(s), recording, digital collection, creative collaboration, exhibition(s), performance(s) or community experience(s) that can be shared and celebrated with the public.
Through the City of Hillsboro’s core values, the Cultural Arts Division supports arts and culture in the community by respecting diverse ideas and voices, emphasizing innovation, and providing excellent public service to enhance Hillsboro’s hometown livability.
