Tillamook County Cultural Coalition Awards Funding for Five Tillamook County Projects | Community

The Tillamook County Cultural Coalition (TCCC) Board of Directors recently awarded 2022 grant funds to five cultural organizations in Tillamook County. The Coalition administers and distributes funding for the Oregon Cultural Trust in Tillamook County. TCCC is grateful to all organizations that have applied and continue to enrich the culture of Tillamook County.

Organizations receiving 2022 funding are:

Tillamook County Pioneer Museum – Object Reconciliation and Accessibility Project

North Shore Recreation District – Performing arts center theater signage

Neskowin Valley School – Environment and Sustainable Development Project

Riverbend Players – Fundamental Theater Workshops

white clover barn – Heritage Apple Oral History Project

Founded in 2002, the Oregon Cultural Trust (OCT) works to protect and stabilize Oregon’s cultural resources by creating a solid foundation for the future; increase public awareness of the quality, access, and use of culture in Oregon; and to ensure that Oregon’s cultural resources are strong and vibrant contributors to Oregon’s communities and quality of life.

Each year, one-third of Trust funds go to 45 Oregon County cultural coalitions. The coalitions, in turn, grant these funds to local cultural programs or projects in their counties. The Tillamook County Cultural Coalition (TCCC) selects projects to receive funding in the following areas: education, community arts, heritage, environment and traditions.

TCCC is seeking additional board members for 2022 who are aligned with the missions of the Oregon Cultural Trust and TCCC to enhance local arts, heritage, and humanities in Tillamook County. Currently, all meetings are held virtually via Zoom. Contact TCCC at [email protected] to request a board membership application.
