If you’re an artist interested in unique, outside-the-box opportunities, this September has lots to offer. Whether you have new media work you want to share with the public, need funding for a technology-based art project, or are interested in helping us learn how to better serve artists, make sure these deadlines are on your calendar:

Call for artists: e4c 2017 season
Deadline: Wednesday, September 28, 5:00 pm PST

e4c is our highly visible venue for emerging artists to present work in Seattle’s vibrant Pioneer Square neighborhood. Since 2008, more than seventy artists have presented their media artworks to an audience on the move: bus and car commuters, pedestrians, and bicyclists. This call is for independent electronic media artists living in the U.S. and working in all genres. Artworks between 1-5 minutes are desired. Up to 15 artists will be selected to present work for as long as one year, and each selected artist will receive a $500 honorarium.

Artists Up Grant Lab
Deadline: Wednesday, September 28, 5:00 pm PST
Introducing Grant Lab: the grant that’s also an experiment! Through our collaborative program Artists Up, artists of color have given us ideas about how to make our grants more accessible, and now we’re testing them out. By applying, you’ll help us learn how we can improve our programs. Visit our Opportunities page to see the full guidelines, and learn more about Artists Up.

Tech Specific Grant
Deadline: Thursday, September 29, 5:00 pm PST
Calling all makers! Are you working where art and tech collide? Have a project in mind that could use some help getting off the ground? Analog to digital, low-tech to high-tech, individuals to organizations—we’re interested in supporting it all. Learn more about the grant requirements online, and come meet your fellow tinkerers and chat with us about it at an Art + Tech Happy Hour on August 30!
