The Community Foundation Serving the Counties of Riverside and San Bernardino (TCF) received funding from The James Irvine Foundation for the Arts Regranting Program/ Inland Empire (ARPIE) which will provide risk capital to small and micro arts organizations in the two-county region to experiment with arts engagement activities. The Arts Program goal is to promote engagement in the arts for all Californians: Arts engagement that embraces and advances the diverse way that we experience the arts and that strengthens our ability to thrive together in a dynamic and complex social environment. The regranting funds are for small arts organizations in the Inland Empire (note that Mountain Regions and High Desert areas can also apply) to experiment with new approaches to arts engagement. Grants are intended as risk-capital for very small arts organizations, agencies, art collectives and groups to pilot projects that focus on

1) reaching low-income and/or ethnically diverse populations that have been traditionally underserved by nonprofit arts organizations,

2) offering active engagement in the arts in which participants are making or practicing art, and/or

3) using nontraditional arts venues such as churches, store fronts and shopping malls, or open lots and other spaces not typically designated for arts use that are easily accessible and familiar to the public.

The Riverside Art Museum (RAM) is soliciting artist proposals as part of RAM’s Riverside Art Make project that is taking place in April-May 2014 and 2015. Funded in part by a City of Riverside Arts and Culture Grant and the Exploring Engagement Fund for Priority Regions from the James Irvine Foundation, the Riverside Art Make will produce art happenings that evoke a sense of shared community among neighbors, families, and friends who live, work, and play in the city.
