Since 2013, the Precipice Fund has provided critical support to unincorporated visual art collectives, alternative spaces, and collaborative projects in and around Portland, Oregon. Operating outside traditional forms of support, funded projects seek to promote dialogue, cultivate communities, and encourage generative and expansive artistic process while driving culture forward locally and nationally. The Precipice Fund recognizes these informal, experimental, and often anti-institutional projects as integral to the innovative spirit and vibrant art ecology of Metro Portland and surrounding areas.
Portland Institute for Contemporary Art (PICA) is pleased to announce Round 11 of the Precipice Fund, awarding grants of up to $5,000 to unincorporated visual art collectives, alternative spaces, and collaborative projects. For Round 11, we will only accept proposals for projects based in and around the City of Portland. We encourage applications from first-time grant writers, artists from underrepresented communities, and projects that reflect the region’s diversity of cultures, aesthetics, and creative practices.
