Building an artistic landscape in Spokane through collaboration

Terrain

Terrain began in 2008 as a one-night exhibition meant to light a vitalizing spark in Spokane’s artistic ecosystem. It has since grown into an influential nonprofit with three flagship events, three programs and a permanent gallery.

Thankfully, Terrain’s growth is far from over. The nonprofit’s 10th anniversary inspired an expansive vision for the future. Terrain decided it needed an Executive Director to develop community partnerships and bolster organizational efficiency. Innovia Foundation awarded a $30,000 Community Strategies grant to partially fund the director’s salary.

“Growth in Terrain’s capacity will allow our organization to vastly improve the vitality and impact of Spokane’s creative class, thereby strengthening the vibrancy and economy of our community as a whole,” says Brian Estes, Board President of Terrain. “This will have reverberating effects for our region and will make Spokane a magnet for innovation and industry.”
