      Application open: 2017 Neighborhood & Community Arts and Arts in Parks grants open

      The Office of Arts & Culture is offering two grant programs to support and encourage the vibrant cultural work being done in and by communities throughout Seattle.

      NEIGHBORHOOD & COMMUNITY ARTS GRANT 2017 (NCA)
      The program supports neighborhood arts councils and community-based groups that have established a track record for producing recurring festivals or events that promote arts and cultural participation, celebrates our diversity, builds community connections, and enhances the visibility of neighborhoods through arts and culture.

      ELIGIBILITY AND FUNDING
      Neighborhood arts councils and local community-based groups serving diverse cultures that have been in existence for at least one year at the time of application are eligible to apply. Groups may not be funded through Civic Partners, City Artists, or smART ventures in 2016. Groups may apply with a fiscal sponsor; they do not have to be 501(c)(3) nonprofits.  Funded organizations will receive two (2) years of NCA funding support (for events in 2017 and 2018) of $1,200 per year to support direct project expenses. See guidelines for details.

      ARTS IN PARKS GRANT 2017 (AIP)
      In partnership with Seattle Parks and Recreation, this program supports neighborhood arts councils and community-based groups that are seeking to activate Seattle Parks with new and established festivals or events that promote arts and cultural participation, celebrate our diversity and build community connections through arts and culture while connecting with underserved communities.

      ELIGIBILITY AND FUNDING
      Individual artists, neighborhood arts councils and local community-based groups are eligible to apply. Organizations and individual artists representing underserved communities including low-income, immigrant and refugee communities, and communities of color are encouraged to apply. Please note that groups applying are not required to be a 501(c)(3) nonprofit nor are they required to use a fiscal agent. Funded organizations will receive one year of AIP funding support in levels from $1,200 to $7,200 to support direct expenses. See guidelines for details.
