At Caldera, we believe in the power of creativity to make a better world. We are a mission driven organization that is focused on being a catalyst for the transformation of underserved youth through innovative, year-round art and environmental programs.
Our Youth Program provides students from Portland and Central Oregon with long-term mentoring that nurtures individual creativity, beginning in sixth grade and continuing into young adulthood. Our Artists in Residence (AiR) Program awards US-based and international artists the gift of time and space for their creative practice at our Arts Center near Sisters, OR.
Caldera has a $2 million-dollar budget, with 15 full-time year-round employees, and a range of seasonal artists and youth workers. Its administrative office is located in Portland, Oregon, and its Arts Center is located outside of Sisters in Central Oregon, between Suttle Lake and Blue Lake.
