2013 Art Projects:Individuals recipient

Artists and creative groups produce and present some of the most engaging and relevant art events in our region. Art Projects ensures King County residents and visitors have access to art exhibitions, performances, screenings, readings, festivals and happenings, throughout the County.

4Culture provides critically needed funds to artists and art groups, of all disciplines, who reside in King County to create and present their work. Eligible projects may be at any stage of development including planning, development and final production. Selected projects must offer public access to a project-related art experience.

In 2014, Arts Projects received a total of 376 applications to be considered for funding. The panelists recommended 84 artists and 64 groups receive grants in the amount of $1,500; $3,500; $5,500 or $7,500 for a total of $560,000 to support 152 art projects to be presented in King County, over the next 18 months. The panelists' recommendations are reviewed and approved by the Arts Advisory Committee and our Board of Directors. We encourage applicants who did not receive project support this year, to apply again because panelists change annually, and subsequently, they award funds to different projects each year.

Group or Individual?

Eligible applicants must apply as either a GROUP or INDIVIDUAL.

Choose GROUP if you represent a group, non-profit organization or business that creates arts-based projects; or are a group of artists who have a history of working together, organized under a group name. In this category, the peer-panel will assess the group’s contribution to the proposed project and work samples. If selected for an award, the group must furnish a Tax ID or an EIN for payment. Contracts may be issued to a Fiscal Sponsor or other designee.

What We Fund

Project eligibility 

Projects requirements:

The money for Art Projects comes from public taxes, specifically, from a portion of Lodging Tax revenues collected in King County. Because of this, your project must offer benefit - King County residents. Think of it this way; 4Culture is purchasing a "cultural service" from you, for the residents and visitors of King County. As you think about your application, consider what you will offer to the public. You will be required to describe this in the "Project Impact" section of the application.

Here are some "Project Impact" ideas you can consider:

  • Free/low cost tickets one or more project performances, exhibitions, workshops, screenings, readings, etc.
  • Presenting a project-related event in suburban or rural King County.
  • Presenting a project-related event to low-income, youth and senior groups; individuals with limited physical abilities; recent immigrants; and residents from minority races or ethnicities.
  • Create free, electronically accessible materials, including literary publications, audio or video recordings.

If you would like to talk to staff about your "Project Impact" idea, please contact us prior to the application deadline or attend one of our workshops

Projects MUST:

  • Offer public benefit (see section below on public benefit) and be accessible to the citizens of King County;
  • Begin no earlier than June 1, 2014 and be completed by December 31, 2015. The phase of the project for which you are seeking funding cannot begin prior to June 1, 2014; and
  • Be of direct benefit to the applicant; and
  • If a Group, be directly related to the mission of group.

Projects MAY include the following:

  • The development of new work.
  • The interpretation of existing work.
  • The presentation of new work or collection of works.
  • Support professional development (e.g. workshop, conference, residency).
  • Support the rental or purchase of materials that further the applicant's creative project

Projects MAY NOT:

  • Be produced by a 2013-2014 Sustained Support organization.
  • Include tuition and cost-of-living expenses for matriculated students in any degree program.
  • Propose permanent public art projects or planning for permanent public art projects. For public art opportunities visit our opportunity listings page.
  • Include capital construction projects.
  • Include general operating support.

Applying for other 4Culture Project Support

If your project involves multiple disciplines - preservation, heritage, and/or the arts - you may be eligible to submit it for consideration under more than one 4Culture funding program. In your Art Projects application, you MUST disclose that you have applied or intend to apply to another 4Culture program for the same or related project. Please contact 4Culture to discuss your application and other possible support at 4Culture.

  • April: Applications will be reviewed for eligibility and organized by staff in preparation for the peer-panel review process.

Each award recipient will then work with the Program Coordinator to develop a contract that governs the payment of funds. Funds become available after contracts are signed and submitted with all necessary documents.

They may receive the final 50% of the grant funds after they have completed the public benefit they identified in the “Project Impact” section of their application. Completion of the project, including final documentation and invoice, is expected by December 31, 2015.

FAQ

How can I get help on my application?

Applicants are strongly advised to take advantage of the following helpful resources:

  • Plan ahead by reviewing the Sample Application and prepare written materials about your project, budget and work sample description, before you begin your on-line application. If you have limited or no computer access or limited computer experience, contact staff. We will do our best to help you complete an application.
  • Attend a free application workshop. Workshops are presented by 4Culture staff to help guide you through the application process. We also have workshops available on-line to help assist you.
  • Review successful applications submitted by others. You may visit our office to review successful project descriptions, project impact descriptions and sample budgets from past award recipients. Our resource room is generally open Monday - Friday, 9am - 5pm.
  • Communicate with program staff about eligibility requirements, project ideas and other resources. All applicants are strongly encouraged to contact staff prior to preparing an application if there is a question about eligibility.

I received an award from 4Culture last year, can I apply again?

You may have received support from King County programs last year and still apply this year. You may not apply for the same phase of the project if you received funding for it in previous years. Please note that when applying for a different phase of the same project for which you received an award, your project may be less competitive.

What if the project I want to do is totally different than what I have done in the past?

If your project is different than what you have to present in your work samples, be sure to help the panelists understand why you are taking on this new challenge and how your past work demonstrates your ability to achieve this new kind of work. You should include this in the "project description" section of the application.

How much money can I apply for? Is there a limit on the request I can make to 4Culture?

We award funds in four fixed amounts: $1,500; $3,500; $5,500 or $7,500. Panelists may elect to fund an applicant at a lower level than requested, if they believe the project is still feasible at a lower award amount. Because panelists are artists and arts workers themselves, they know what things cost. Be honest about your needs. Panelists tend to score projects low if they feel the applicant's budget is inflated.

Can you give me an example of what "in-kind" support is? I don't get it.

Here is an example for you. Say your brother is letting you borrow a generator for your project, find out how much a generator would cost you to rent for the length of your project. That rental amount can be included in your budget under In-Kind, as support your brother is providing toward the project.

Can I apply if my project is produced by an organization supported by 4Culture's Sustained Support program?

If the project is a production of the organization, then no, you may not apply to Art Projects. However, if you are simply renting their facility or your project is not being produced by the organization, then yes, you may apply to Art Projects.

What is "Choice Criteria" and why do we have to select something?

Choice Criteria provides a way for you to determine how some of your application will be evaluated. Applicants will be organized and reviewed by the Choice Criteria you select. By empowering the applicant to determine part of the process, we believe panelists will be able to compare like-projects, which will help applicants be their most competitive. We think of it as asking the peer-panel to consider oranges and tangerines rather than apples and oranges. We don't have any one favorite. 4Culture values Artistic Development, Community Engagement and Sustained Value equally. See our tip sheet for more information.

Who is the person I contact if I have other questions?

If you are an individual artist, contact Heather Dwyer You can reach her via email or by phone at 206 296.8676

If you are representing an arts group or organization, contact Doreen Mitchum, You can reach her via email or by phone at 206 296.7579

Notification

4Culture will send a letter to notify you of your award when it has been approved by our Arts Advisory Committee.

Contract Packet

In order to receive your funds, you must sign a Contract or Letter of Agreement with 4Culture, making you or your group the "Contractor". The contract spells out the services you or your group will provide and the public benefits described in your application. If you want to make any modifications to the project or public benefit described in your application, please contact Heather Dwyer (Individuals) or Doreen Mitchum (Groups) to discuss the changes to your agreement.

We will prepare a Contract Packet and will send it to you as soon as possible. We're often processing hundreds of contracts at once, so please be patient. The Contract Packet will contain:

Getting Paid

When you receive and review the contract packet, please complete and return:

  • Two (2) copies of your Contract or Letter of Agreement
  • One (1) Phase 1 Invoice (50% of your awarded funds) - both front and back sides. These are the only funds that will be available to you until you finish the project submit your final required documents.
  • One (1) W-9 Form

Once the above documents are received by 4Culture, we will:

  • Return one signed copy of your Contract or Letter of Agreement for your records
  • Send you a check (usually within 14 days).
  • If any of the forms are filled out incorrectly, we will contact you.

Requirements prior to presenting or publishing your project

Help us demonstrate the reach of 4Culture's funding and the value of supporting culture to elected officials and the general public.

To receive final payment you must:

  • Acknowledge 4Culture's support with this text in all project-related print and on-line material: This project was supported, in part, by an award from 4Culture.
  • Include this logo on project-related materials including: websites, brochures, press releases, programs, posters, flyers, advertisements, signage and other related collateral material.
