The City of Eugene’s Cultural Services division is teaming up with Parks and Open Space to introduce a new grant opportunity for local event producers

Eugene, OR – According to the city officials, Art in the Parks will award up to $5,000 per project to individuals or organizations who wish to produce their own quality programming in the City’s publicly accessible parks.

Officials also said that a total of $25,000 will be awarded to selected Eugene-based recipients for the 2023 grant cycle.

The Art in the Parks grant seeks to steward vibrant, inspiring places that foster personal, community and environmental wellbeing.

The program intends to cultivate a sense of belonging in the park system and pride in historically underrepresented groups such as Eugene’s BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ populations, low-income communities, people with disabilities, unhoused individuals, youth and seniors.

Funded events should nurture relationships and promote cultural exchange through arts experiences that honor and celebrate diversity while striving to inspire empathy, understanding, dialogue, wonder and curiosity. 

Applications will be accepted until noon April 17 and events must occur between June 1 and Oct. 31 of this year.

A live online info session will be held from noon-1 p.m. March 23 to answer questions and provide tips on navigating the application and budget.
