Oregon Arts Commission Awards Live Wire $13,000 Grant | Live Wire Radio

Live Wire Radio is pleased to announce that we have been awarded a $13,000 Operating Support grant from the Oregon Arts Commission for FY 13-14. The Commission’s Operating Support grants fund the operations of Oregon’s leading arts groups and acknowledge the role those organizations play in Oregon’s social, educational and economic arenas.

The Oregon Arts Commission awarded $1.36 million in its first round of awards for fiscal year 2013-14. Grants were awarded in Operating Support: $945,700; Arts Services: $163,400; and Arts Learning programs: $184,500; as well as for designated statewide and regional programs.

In announcing the grants, Christine D’Arcy, Executive Director of the Arts Commission, notes, “These arts organizations are not only enabling Oregonians to experience great art, live performances and new works, they’re making Oregon a better place by retaining jobs, inspiring students and providing lifelong learning for our citizens.”

The Arts Commission is supported with general funds appropriated by the Oregon legislature and with federal funds from the National Endowment for the Arts as well as funds from the Oregon Cultural Trust. www.oregonartscommission.org
