UPDATE: Ditch Projects funded their Kickstarter! Congrats!

 

 

Our friends over at Ditch Projects in Springfield have recently launched a Kickstarter campaign, to help cover costs associated with becoming an official 501(c)(3) non-profit. ECA funded our first space and residency program via our Kickstarter back in 2013. Several Ditch artist lent there support to us, either through donations, or by providing art work as rewards. Please check out their campaign, and consider donating, or at least sharing this effort with anyone you know who cares about the depth of our arts culture in Lane County.
