Our Foundation is one of three statewide to receive a grant from ArtsWA, formerly known as the Washington State Arts Commission. The grants will expand the reach and connections of ArtsWA, especially in smaller communities across the state.

The grant tasks us to design and conduct an inclusive arts convening during the first quarter of 2013. We were selected based on The Foundation’s knowledge of and relationship with the arts in our communities. ArtsWA is a state agency that collaborates with artists, arts organizations, and communities to conserve and develop the state’s artistic resources. ArtsWA also plans to strengthen its relationships with community foundations and their arts communities across the state.

“ArtsWA recognizes the unique roles community foundations serve in understanding and providing leadership to their communities, “ notes agency executive director Kris Tucker. “A partnership with Washington’s community foundations will enable ArtsWA to better and more equitably serve residents throughout the state.”
