The Youth Arts grant is a 2-year grant that supports equitable access to arts and cultural learning opportunities for Seattle youth. Programs occur outside of school hours in-person or online and are led by experienced artists and teaching artists working in communities across Seattle to increase arts and cultural opportunities for young people from diverse racial and socioeconomic backgrounds.
Data shows that the greatest disparities between young people who have access to arts education and those who don’t, are based on race, socioeconomics, home language, and disabilities. As with all the Seattle Office of Arts & Culture’s Creative Youth Programs, Youth Arts grant prioritizes programs serving young people within the above demographic groups.
