4Culture is proud to be a collaborative partner of Artists Up, which has recently launched the Grant LAB, an experiment of grantmaking ideas and practices for greater access and equity to benefit ALL communities in Seattle, King County and Washington State. This opportunity is open to artists working in all disciplines.
We seek to support artists who have received less than $1,600 from the collaborative partners [Seattle Office of Arts & Culture, 4Culture or Artist Trust] in the past 2 years [2014-2016]. There will be up to 18 awards and each award will be $3,000. Artists of color are strongly encouraged to apply.
Awarded artists will need to offer an opportunity to share in-progress or finished work with the community. This can include an exhibit, installation, performance, reading, screening or collaborative presentation.
Deadline: September 28, 2016 – 5pm Pacific
Workshops: To learn about the application, review or contracting, artists are encouraged to listen to a webinar or attend a workshop.
