Caldera has received a $15,000 grant from The Roundhouse Foundation.

Noting the importance of Caldera as a strong partner in the region and an impressive statewide model, The Roundhouse Foundation awarded Caldera the grant to support expanded teacher training activities in Central Oregon and Portland.

In this collaborative project with The Roundhouse Foundation, Caldera will offer teachers at its partner schools access to Caldera arts curriculum training, more integration into Caldera's programming, and direct support from Caldera's education director and education team.

"This generous grant allows Caldera to contribute to arts training for Oregon teachers, strengthen relationships with its partner schools, and formalize its own professional development activities," said Caldera's Executive Director Tricia Snell.

The Roundhouse Foundation was established in Sisters in October 2002 to encourage community enrichment and economic development through the arts in Central Oregon. The Roundhouse Foundation focuses its funding on collaborative, community projects that celebrate the arts and heighten community awareness and appreciation for the arts in its many aspects.
