Oregon is unique among states, in having created a funding model for the arts, heritage and humanities through the Oregon Cultural Trust. Via tax credits, the trust supports statewide partners, tribal and county coalitions, and qualified cultural nonprofits.

Speaking with Eric Alan in the KLCC studios are Aili Schreiner, Trust Manager for the Oregon Cultural Trust; and Pamela Quan, Director of the DisOrient Asian American Film Festival of Oregon, which just earned a grant from the Lane County Cultural Coalition.
