Funding opportunity for Seattle individual performing artists

Seattle-based artists working in dance, music and theater (including playwriting) may apply for set award amounts of $4,000, $6,000 and $8,000 to fund projects in 2013. CityArtist Projects is an annual funding program that supports individual Seattle artists in the development and presentation of new, in-progress or remounted works taken to the next level.

Applications are due 11 p.m., Thursday, July 19, 2012 (Pacific Daylight Time). Find the guidelines and online application here.

Priority will be given to quality art projects that focus on public access. Applications will be scored on their ability to address at least one of these elements: provide opportunities for audience engagement; offer physical, economic, geographic or cultural access; diversify the arts and cultural activities available to Seattle residents and visitors; encourage partnerships and creative collaborations in the community; and/or create meaningful arts experiences that reflect and are relevant to Seattle’s diverse population.

Attend an application overview workshop, 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., Monday, June 11 at the Douglass-Truth Branch of The Seattle Public Library. All applicants, particularly new ones, are encouraged to attend this free information session. Reservations are not required.

An application draft review sessionwill be held 5 to 7 p.m., Thursday, June 28, at the Northwest African American Museum. Draft review is strongly encouraged for first-time applicants. These are 15-minute appointments by reservation only. Contact Irene Gómez, (206) 684-7310.
