Funding open for individual artists in the perfoming arts

We’re accepting applications for the 2011 CityArtist Projects program that supports Seattle-based individual artists working in the performing arts, including dance, music and theater. Funding awards range up to $10,000 to support projects in 2011.

CityArtist Projects is an annual funding program that provides support to individual Seattle artists to conceive, develop and present new, in-progress or remounted works taken to the next stage. Projects must include a public presentation in the city. The program encourages a broad range of artistic and cultural expression that reflects Seattle’s diversity. Funding is offered to artists in clusters of disciplines in the visual, media and literary arts and performing arts in alternate years.

Link to the online application here. The application deadline is Tuesday, July 20, 2010. For more information, contact Irene Gómez, (206) 684-7310.

Attend an application overview workshop, 5 to 7 p.m., Thursday, June 24 at the Douglass-Truth Branch of The Seattle Public Library. All applicants, particularly new ones, are encouraged to attend this free information session which includes an introduction to the CityArtist Projects funding program; a step-by-step review of the application process; and presentations by previous grant recipients, choreographer Dayna Hanson and theater artist Zaki Abdelhamid. Reservations are not required.
