As 2010 comes to a close, theArtsCAN has set our sights on the ballot as we finalize a groundbreaking proposal to bridge the public funding gap and bring the arts to life for every child and every community in the Portland Metropolitan Region.
When the City of Portland and Regional Arts & Culture Council renewed their support for theArtsCAN with a second investment of $100,000, they also challenged us to Build the Movement. And build we have.
Just four months into our $100,000 Outreach Challenge, theArtsCAN has met and exceeded nearly every goal – recruiting more than 1,000 new supporters, expanding our network with nearly 300 messengers and raising more than $5,000 in dues from a growing list of members. With just over $10,000 left to raise by December 31st from community donations, theArtsCAN movement is stronger than ever.
