Oregon traditional artists interested in the Traditional Arts Recovery Program have until 5 p.m. Aug. 31 to submit their self nominations to eafanado@uoregon.edu.

The Traditional Arts Recovery Program will provide $5,000 stipends to 15 Oregon traditional artists for the creation of new work. Eligible artists will use a range of art forms to represent and express Oregon’s diverse ethnic, sacred, occupational and regional cultural arts.

This program does not have an open application. It is a two-phase program that begins with a nomination process with limited eligibility requirements. A list of eligibility guidelines can be found at bit.ly/3iCXyPF.

The Traditional Arts Recovery Program is administered by the Oregon Folklife Network, in partnership with the Oregon Arts Commission, with National Endowment for the Arts American Rescue Plan funds.
