Our work is founded on the following principles: the arts bring people together and strengthen communities, the arts are critical to a strong educational system, the arts add value to Oregon’s economy, and the arts are fundamental to a healthy society.

Our programs ensure that arts organizations across the state have the skills and resources to offer high quality programs, Oregon artists are supported and acknowledged for their creation of high quality work, and Oregonians have access to excellent art opportunities and experiences.
