Corporeal Voices

Corporeal Voices is a 501c3 tax-exempt organization dedicated to providing direct resources to writers for their artistic labor and voice.

The Voice is a Muscle Annual Grant for oregon writers:

Each year The Voice is a Muscle awards a $10,000.00 grant to an Oregon writer, to be distributed in two payments over the course of a year.  

We are dedicated to amplifying artistic voices by extending direct financial resources to writers. Your artistic labor is important and urgently needed.  Art is the counter voice to cultural repression. Writers matter. 

We understand making art as vital social labor, rather than market-driven product. Because in times of crisis, artists and writers must never choose silence. And because money should not be a wall in front of truth.

Corporeal Voices is dedicated to recognizing the voices, bodies and lives of writers as socially vital to society. We are committed to non-hierarchical collaborations, to the body as a site of resistance and resilience, to new forms of storytelling, and to new relationships to the planet and to one another. 

Our 2016 inaugural grant will be dedicated to: THE VOICES OF PEOPLE OF COLOR

The 2017 grant will be dedicated to: THE VOICES OF LGBTQ people
