Funding Opportunity for Seattle Artists

Seattle-based artists working in the visual, literary and media arts may apply for set award amounts of either $2,000 or $4,000 to support projects in 2012. City Artist Projects is an annual funding program that provides support to individual Seattle artists to develop and present new, in-progress or remounted works taken to the next stage. Projects must include a public presentation in the city.

Assistance is available during drop-in draft review sessions on Monday, Oct. 17 and Monday, Oct. 24. Click here for more details.

Priority will be given to quality art projects that focus on public benefit defined as community impact and access. Projects must include at least one of these four elements: engage new audiences, develop partnerships, create access through education and public awareness opportunities and/or present in non-traditional venues.

Eligibility: Seattle-based individual artists proposing projects in the visual, literary and media arts. Artists working in traditional/ethnic and multidisciplinary projects that incorporate one of these primary arts disciplines may also apply. CityArtists funds different disciplines in alternating years.

Deadline: 11 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 1, 2011

Application: Access the online application here.

Draft review sessions: Staff will host a series of drop-in draft review sessions in October. Check here for dates and details.
