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.

Current Grant Cycle

Status: Open starting 10/31/18


This year the process will be a bit different. We’re asking everyone who is interested in receiving funds to 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 5-10 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.


In the first part of December we’ll consider all project proposals from coordinators who submitted the initial survey by November 15th and had a phone conversation with either Koko or Josephine. If there are remaining funds, we’ll consider proposals on a periodic basis after the first round.

For more information, please contact Josephine Kuever at josephine@ya-or.org or 503-225-5900 x231
