We are accepting applications for our Youth Arts funding program which supports arts training for Seattle’s middle and high school youth beyond the regular school day.
Individual artists, artist teams, arts and cultural organizations, and/or youth and community service agencies with nonprofit status or fiscal sponsorship are eligible to apply. Priority is placed on serving youth or communities with limited access to arts and culture. Funding awards range from $1,500 to $10,000 for projects in all artistic disciplines that take place between September 2010 and September 2011. The application deadline is Feb. 23, 2010.
“Arts training nurtures the imagination, boosts confidence and opens pathways to success for young people,” said Michael Killoren, director of the Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs. “The arts inspire discipline, hard work and the joy of creative expression, all elements of a well-rounded education.”
