Far West Recycling Arts Grant

About the Grant

Young Audiences and Far West Recycling have partnered together for more than 25 years to bring arts programming to K-8 Beaverton School District students. This grant provides funding for programs with Young Audiences artists, including:

  • school-wide performances
  • classroom residencies or workshops
  • school community arts projects (e.g., entry murals, courtyard sculptures)
  • family arts nights.

  • Schools listed on the Beaverton School District website that serve K through 8th grades.
  • Schools that either did not receive a grant last school year, OR received a grant and returned a grant report to Young Audiences.

We had good feedback about the process last year so we’re doing the same this year! Everyone who is interested in receiving funds should fill out a short survey (contact information, the disciplines you’re interested in and what type of program you’re thinking about).

Next we’ll schedule a 10-15 minute phone conversation with you to talk about possible programs and a budget. We can only review one proposal from each school so please coordinate with each other on your plans.

Please submit your survey by October 11th so we can hold phone conversations between October 7th and 18th. The review panel will meet during the first week of November and notify schools the following week. If there are remaining funds, we’ll consider proposals on a periodic basis after the first round.
