Val Rogers

Can grant funds be used for project expenses incurred in a foreign country?
John Friedlander
02:34:22
At some point I hope you’ll describe the nature of the “business relationship” between the lead artist and the spoonsorin
John Friedlander
02:34:32
…the sponsoring non-profit...
Ryan Meagher
02:34:40
What about non-creative 501c3 ?
Ryan Meagher
02:35:21
What about other types of non-profit organizations?
Jerry Tischleder
02:35:31
Yes, the location where the expenses are incurred is not limited to Oregon.
Brandi Ebner
02:35:44
My organization is a 501c3, could we fiscally sponsor multiple artists with their applications?
Jerry Tischleder
02:36:15
Any 501c3 can receive the funds, as long as it's for a artistic/creative project
Kisha Jarrett
02:39:51
If there is an individual that has two projects with two different creative teams they are applying for, could both be funded?
Jerry Tischleder
02:40:42
An individual can be involved in multiple funded projects, however we will only accept one application from an individual as a lead artist
April
02:40:58
Hello! Question. Chey mentioned the High Desert Museum’s project. So, to clarify, would it be ok to apply with a project that has a more curatorial focus, bringing together artistic work that has already been created, but putting the work together for the first time in an exhibition? Or is a new commission coupled with the exhibition an important component, and would that elevate a project’s competitiveness? Thanks so much for the clarity!
Elizabeth Ocampo
02:41:00
How many LOIs does OCF typically get for Creative Heights each year?
Valerie Bergman
02:41:27
Can two artists, co-artistic directors, be lead? or only one?
Jerry Tischleder
02:42:42
A curatorial project without new commissions could be competitive if you can demonstrate the priority for how it is a creative stretch. Generally, most funded projects have involved new work of some type
Ben Moorad (he/him)
02:42:49
I hear that a sponsoring organization can’t claim the project as their creative work. Can you give us a sense of what expenses would be allowable for that sponsor (beyond basic admin)? For instance, could they be paid to promote the project? Can they provide some creative consultation? Thanks!
Jerry Tischleder
02:43:27
Most year's we've received 50-70 LOI's, however with greater outreach we received 140 last year.
Jerry Tischleder
02:43:55
We ask for a single creative lead, who will be our primary contact for the grant. That person can be part of a team.
Trieste Andrews
02:44:14
Would a community art center in partnership with community theater, music, and artists be applicable for this grant. We are a 501c3.
Glenn Hill
02:44:35
Does the non-profit need to eb an arts non p. ?
Glenn Hill
02:45:23
Can a religious enty be the 501 3c ?
John Friedlander
02:45:23
Are there negative issues with OR-based sponsoring non-profit art orgs which might “charge” a % of the grant as an administration fee?
Val Rogers
02:45:59
Can grant funds be used for project expenses incurred in a foreign country?
Sandy C
02:46:10
If an applicant asks for more funding than you would like to grant to a project, do you sometimes offer a grant of less money?
Glenn Hill
02:46:27
My 501 is wondering how much staff time will be needed to parter for my project?
cambriamatlow
02:46:37
For film/video, how important is it to articulate distribution plans - often audience numbers are unknown until film starts to be shown.
Chas Martin
02:46:54
The nonprofit I'm working with would need a budget line to cover grant financial oversight. Is that considered a legitimate expense?
Sophie Traub
02:47:25
Can projects apply through fiscal sponsorship? Can multiple projects under the same fiscal sponsor apply?
Glenn Hill
02:47:56
Yes, can the non-profit be compensated for their work in overseeing the project?
Chas Martin
02:49:09
Are grant apps ever partially funded forcing artist to raise additional funds? Or is this an all or nothing grant based on total budget submitted? Thanks
Glenn Hill
02:51:53
Do I have to have a 501 ready to work with me, in order to do a first inquiry?
Ryan Meagher
02:57:11
Het, I was in that!
Glenn Hill
03:05:54
Does the non-profit have to be an Arts organization?
Shaun Keylock
03:06:07
What would you recommend for the “public presentation” component in the time of COVID-19? Should we assume venues, theaters, etc. will reopen for our project? Should we demonstrate a pandemic contingency plan?
Ryan Meagher
03:06:17
I'm wondering about the preference timeline mentioned. It was said that preference was given to projects that are not"completed" before November, but can they start taking place in September/October?
Kisha Jarrett
03:06:39
am I the only person where the slides aren’t moving?
John Friedlander
03:06:58
Is too much detail in an LOI a negative? Or is brevity a strong plus?
Kari Kvittem
03:07:40
Can an artist involved in a Creative Heights project proposal also be applying for the Fields Fellowship? (Could both the artist and the group potentially be funded)
Kurt Liedtke
03:08:33
In the instance of multiple 501c3’s collaborating or hiring one for arts-related work for another 501c3, which should submit the LOI application/be listed as creative lead? We are working for hire with a theater for live-streaming services and would like to submit for funding. So does the director of the theater submit, or do we as the creative leads providing livestreaming services? In a collaborative effort who would be the creative lead and who would be the applicant 501c3?
Trieste Andrews
03:09:10
Would funding for murals in a city be applicable?
cambriamatlow
03:10:49
Can you give an example of film/video that has been funded? Also, would creation of a narrative or documentary film be competitive?
keyon
03:11:18
comment: thank you for doing this. i understand this information is mostly accessible in print on line and zoom doesn’t offer it automatically but closed captioning would make this webinar much more accessible. sorry if i missed how to do that since i came in a little late.
Sophie Traub
03:14:28
For the residency programs you have funded in the past, was it required that the participating residents be from Oregon, or is it sufficient for the designers and facilitators of the residency be based in Oregon?
Sandy C
03:15:47
Do the character limits include spaces? :)
Jerry Tischleder

Glenn Hill
03:17:03
This is most helpful , thank you for doing this presentation ! :-)
Blake Shell
03:17:17
Could the project be a BIPOC Curatorial Team that is working with an artist outside of Oregon, presenting in Portland? Or is is Oregon artists, not curators or other cultural producers?
cambriamatlow
03:17:23
Thanks for posting the report with previous grantees!
Brandi Ebner
03:17:43
Could the purchase of equipment that can be used for multiple events, artist opportunities be competitive?
Ryan Meagher
03:17:59
Thanks for all of the info!
keyon
03:18:48
thanks!
Blake Shell
03:20:17
Thank you, super helpful
Nancy Floyd
03:20:21
This was addressed but want to make sure that I got it right: If an artist is the lead on a proposal can she collaborate with a 501C that is also applying for this award?
Stephen Munshaw
03:20:57
Do you have any samples of successful Letters of Interest or Videos?
Valerie Bergman
03:24:05
if applying for Creative Heights and Artist Fellowship should they be two different projects?
Bonnie Ratner
03:24:33
If there's a publishing component and a "performance" component for the work, are self publishing fees legitimate grant costs?
