Cultural Trust now accepting applications for 2013 grants

Do you have a great art display or show you’d like to produce? Maybe you want to preserve or highlight some fascinating part of Hood River County’s cultural heritage? Or perhaps you’d like to invite a fascinating author or historian to the area to help people learn more about literature or the humanities?

If you have a project in the arts, heritage or humanities, the Hood River Cultural Trust wants you. HRCT is now accepting applications for its 2013 grant cycle. Applications are due Oct. 1.

HRCT is an organization dedicated to maintaining and preserving cultural expression throughout Hood River County. It is a part of the Oregon Cultural Trust, an organization created by the Legislative Assembly to help provide a permanent funding structure and grant program for artistic and cultural endeavors around the state.

The Oregon Cultural Trust is supported by donations from generous individuals and organizations throughout Oregon.

This year, HRCT will have approximately $7,500 to distribute in grants. Individuals and organizations of all types are eligible for grants for projects that largely benefit Hood River County residents. Applications and grant guidelines are available at hoodriverculturaltrust.org.

For more information about HRCT, Oregon Cultural Trust or the grants, contact Buzzy Nielsen, Hood River Cultural Trust board member, at 971-270-0527 or buzzy@hoodriverlibrary.org, or visit hoodriverculturaltrust.org.

"The tangled skirt" opens run at unique venue

Director Judie Hanel presents the Steve Braunstein play “The Tangled Skirt” in an unusual theatrical setting, River Daze Café. Here, Bailey Brice (Bruce Howard) arrives at a small town bus station and has a fateful encounter with Rhonda Claire (Desiree Amyx Mackintosh). Small talk turns into a deadly game of cat and mouse and both seek advantage. The actors present the story as a staged reading in the café, where large windows and street lights lend themselves to the bus station setting, according to Hanel. Performances are 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 28, Saturday, Sept. 30 and Sunday, Oct. 1. (There is no Friday performance.) Tickets available at the door or Waucoma Bookstore: $15 adults, $12 seniors and children under 15. No children under 9. Enlarge
