What is The Community Arts Partner Roster?

The Creative Advantage Community Arts Partner Roster is a vetted list of teaching artists and community arts and culture organizations approved to work in Seattle Public Schools through The Creative Advantage. Arts partners provide integrated and cultural arts learning for students and teachers, and exposure to different methods of expression and viewing the world. 

Community arts partnerships with schools are valued in Seattle for their role in increasing student access to arts learning, broadening the arts disciplines students can explore, and for all the ways they create bridges between communities and schools. The roster is maintained by the Seattle Office of Arts & Culture as a resource for schools seeking partners to meet their education and community goals.


The Community Arts Partner Roster Application opens twice a yearfor new partners to apply. Applications are vetted and approved by a panel of Creative Advantage Advisors, made up of Seattle Public School teachers and current Roster partners. 

The roster is open to Seattle-based:

  • Teaching Artists
  • Community Arts Organizations
  • Cultural Institutions

2022 Roster opens twice a year

  • February 1 – March 7
  • August 10 – September 14 

Applicants can apply to provide student art residencies and professional development opportunities for teachers and will have the option to indicate on the application. 

For questions about the program or for help with the online application please contact the Arts Education Project Manager, Tina LaPadula.
