Arts & Culture
As Council liaison to the Regional Arts and Culture Council, Nick understands that arts, culture and heritage contribute to our local economy and are the soul of our city.
- Nick champions small grants that prioritize local, emerging, and diverse artists.
- Nick supports arts education in our schools, and a fair and accountable Arts Tax.
- Nick protected funding for the Portland Film Office and Open Signal.
- Nick helped preserve a unique part of Portland’s culture and heritage by working with community partners to save the Portland Jazz Festival.
- Nick is partnering with Chloe Eudaly to address the displacement of artists and arts organisations from our city.
