      Funding for artists: CityArtist application now open

      The CityArtist program supports Seattle-based individual artists/curators and the research, development and presentation of their work. Awarded artists will need to offer a public presentation within city limits of Seattle. We support a broad range of artistic and cultural expression reflecting Seattle’s diversity.

      NEW ELEMENTS: The CityArtist application has been simplified with these elements. Project description, budget and outreach plan are NOT required on the application. Only awarded artists will need to develop these items for the contract after selection. Selected artists now have two years to develop and present a creative idea. Options for final report are written or a virtual group sharing.

      Eligibility: Applications will be accepted this year in these art forms or disciplines:

      • Literary (including screenwriting)

      • Media/film

      • Visual

      Traditional/ethnic and multi-disciplinary projects are always welcome, as long as a primary art form is one of the eligible disciplines listed.

      Funding: Applicants may request the following set amounts: $2,000, $5,000, or $8,000.

      Deadline: Wednesday, April 21, 2021, 11:00 P.M. (PT)
