About the 2021 GAP Awards
For the 2021 GAP Awards, we have re-envisioned GAP as Grants for Artists’ Progress. Grants for Artists’ Progress are unrestricted hybrid merit-and-need based grants of $1,500 for BIPOC artists working in all disciplines across Washington State. Funding will be evenly distributed across five Washington State regions: West, Puget Sound, North Central, South Central, and East.
Funding for the 2021 GAP Awards is made possible in part thanks to WarnerMedia, funded by AT&T.
APPLICANTS MUST BE:
18 years of age or older;
Washington State residents at the time of both application and payment (payment will be made in the December 2021);
Individual artists (or artist teams): those who are the originators of works of art;
BIPOC (Alaskan Native, Asian/Asian-American/Pacific Islander or Hawaiian, Black/African/African-American, Latinx, Middle Eastern, Native American or Indigenous, or South Asian)
