Rise Up is a local non-profit that aims to advance the arts and humanities in Central Oregon. We do this through art, music, humanities, cultural events & classes. We have participatory involvement from elementary aged emerging artists and musicians – to adults. We follow the guidelines of the Oregon Cultural Trust to further the arts in Oregon.
In 2012 Rise Up launched our ARTivism project. This initiative blends art and activism to form ARTivism, giving people a creative voice in their community through interactive art and music.
Locally Rise Up hosts ongoing art & music events to promote the cultural heritage of our community. Many of these events are under the banner of Rise Up Presents & culminates in Bend’s largest “locals” festival – Bend Roots Revival!
It’s been exciting to be a part of the emerging talent of many young bands. Check out a write up from the Bend Bulletin about the Youth Movement-Rise Up-Battle of the Bands in Bend. click here.
Rise Up regularly hosts positive music & art events in our community. If you are interested in helping out at a local event, playing at a show, or volunteering please contact email@example.com
