Now open, Centering Art & Racial Equity (C.A.R.E.) grant is the new name of the Seattle Office of Arts & Culture’s organizational funding program previously known as Civic Partners. The updated name highlights the evolution of the program over the past ten years and reflects the values of racial equity, social cohesion, and the importance of art to our communities.
“Arts and culture organizations are a vital part of Seattle’s ecosystem. Our cultural investments aim to leverage the collective community action of Seattle’s arts and cultural sector to create a City where all artists, performers, writers and creative workers have the freedom, agency and platform to share and amplify their stories, art, cultures and experiences, regardless of race, class, gender, age, ability, education, country of birth, citizenship, religion and sexual orientation.”royal alley-barnes, Seattle Office of Arts & Culture Acting Director
The C.A.R.E. grant awards three consecutive years of funding to Seattle arts and culture, heritage, and arts service organizations with a minimum three-year history of providing accessible programming for Seattle residents and visitors. To create a more equitable, vibrant, and relevant arts sector, ARTS prioritizes support for organizations with an arts-focused mission that are taking action to be anti-racist and who value, implement, and uphold inclusive practices through an intersectional racial equity lens.
