Portland, Oregon. (July 25, 2016) – Community Vision is proud to be a recipient of the Regional Arts & Culture Council’s Arts Equity Grant in Portland, Oregon. These funds will support the art exhibition window gallery in Community Vision’s new headquarters, Seven Corners Community Collaborative on 1949 SE Division Street in Portland Oregon.
The Seven Corners Community Collaborative will be a welcoming community space that accommodates families and individuals experiencing disability with increased access to services, new technology, and community resources. The new headquarters will be housing two other nonprofits, FACTOregon and Community Pathways that also provide services to individuals and families experiencing disabilities. The Seven Corners Community Collaborative is universally designed to accommodate more individuals and to provide a network of services in one central location. Individuals and families will have access to new Assistive Technology that will equip them with tools to contribute fully in the community. Community Vision’s new headquarters is designed to set a new standard for accessibility.
In a press release from RACC, Executive Directory Eloise Damrosch says “access to the arts remains a top priority of all of us at RACC, and we have been working for several years to diversify the pool of grant applicants and awards. These new Arts Equity Grants will help get us to the next level, investing in programs and organizations that reach communities of color, underserved neighborhoods, people with disabilities and other under-represented populations.”
