Attention arts and culture nonprofits!
The Oregon Cultural Trust has created a field guide, "Oregon Culture: A Field Guide," that aggregates the activities of the more than 1,300 arts, heritage and humanities nonprofits in the state. Until Nov. 15, you can go nominate cultural activities for the guide.
Current "Featured Activities" include "Visit the Northwest's most Vibrant Latino Theatre" (nonprofit Miracle Theatre in Portland) and "Attending the largest outdoor quilt show in the world" (nonprofit Sisters' Outdoor Quilt Show).
Current nominees for Eugene include the Shelton-McMurphey-Johnson House, the Oregon Country Fair and the University of Oregon Libraries' collection of Ken Kesey manuscripts, papers and letters. This isn't just for pride of making the guide, the Oregon Cultural Trust has dished out over $11 million in grants to arts and culture nonprofits since 2003.
