Cultural Arts Performance Venue Grants Available

The City of Hillsboro offers arts & cultural organizations and individuals or groups presenting cultural events the opportunity to apply for free use of specific event spaces. We receive many requests for free and reduced-price venue spaces, and this program offers an equitable opportunity to support some of those requests. Performance Venue Grants offer use of the theater at the Walters Cultural Arts Center for a single performance on select dates from October 2020 through April 2021.
