      The Seattle Office of Arts & Culture (ARTS) is partnering with Seattle Parks and Recreation to increase arts and community events in parks throughout the city. The Arts in Parks grant supports new and established festivals or events that promote arts and cultural participation, celebrate diversity, build community connections, and activate parks through arts and culture while connecting with communities most impacted by systemic oppression, including low-income, people with disabilities, immigrant and refugee communities, and communities of color.

      Apply Now

      Eligibility

      This call is open to Seattle-based artists, neighborhood arts councils, or local community-based groups. Organizations and individual artists representing communities most impacted by systemic oppression including low-income, people with disabilities, immigrant and refugee communities, and communities of color are encouraged to apply. Organizations must have a Federal Tax ID number and be based in the City of Seattle.

      Groups applying are not required to be a 501(c)(3) nonprofit nor are they required to use a fiscal agent.


      Funding

      Funded organizations will receive one (1) year of Arts in Parks funding support (for events in 2023) to go towards: artist fees, marketing and promotional fees, project management and personnel costs, supplies, equipment rentals or other production-related costs, required permits, and no more than 10% for food-related costs.

      Applicants can apply for the following levels of funding:

      • $1,300 (requires no track record for event production)
      • $2,600*
      • $5,200*
      • $7,800**

      *Only groups with a demonstrated history of producing events can apply for funding at $2,600 level and above.

      **Events/projects previously funded at the $7,200/$7,800 level in years past may only receive funding of $5,200 or less, EXCEPT events/projects that provide a minimum of 12 hours of public programming in an eligible park over the course of at least four (4) days. This restriction is based on feedback from community and to support more projects and help build capacity for events.
