Funding available for Seattle artists, apply by Nov. 1

The Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs is accepting applications from Seattle-based individual artists working in the visual, literary and media arts for the 2012 CityArtist Projects program.

CityArtist Projects is an annual funding program that provides support to individual Seattle artists to develop and present new, in-progress or remounted works taken to the next stage. Funding is offered to artists in clusters of disciplines in the visual, media and literary arts and performing arts in alternate years.

Priority will be given to quality art projects that focus on public benefit defined as community impact and access. Projects will be rated on their ability to address at least one of these four elements: engage new audiences, develop partnerships, create access through education and public awareness opportunities and/or present in non-traditional venues.

Artists can apply for set awards of either $2,000 or $4,000. Projects must be presented between May and December 2012 and include a public presentation.

Link to the online application here. The application deadline is Tuesday, Nov. 1. Staff will host a series of drop-in draft review sessions in October. For more information, contact Irene Gómez, (206) 684-7310.
