Grants to Seattle, Washington individual artists, community-based groups, and neighborhood arts councils for arts and cultural events and festivals in eligible parks. Funding is intended to activate parks located in economically distressed and underserved areas of the city. Funding may be used for artist fees, marketing and promotional fees, project management and personnel costs, supplies, equipment rentals or other production-related costs, required permits and no more than 10% for food-related costs.
This grant supports new and established festivals or events that promote arts and cultural participation, celebrate diversity, build community connections, and activate parks through arts and culture while connecting with under-resourced communities including low-income, people with disabilities, immigrant and refugee communities, and communities of color.
Cultural activities and parks are an essential part of a vibrant, healthy and inclusive community. The mission of Seattle Parks and Recreation is to provide welcoming and safe opportunities to play, learn, contemplate, and build community, and promote responsible stewardship of the land. In partnership with Seattle Parks and Recreation, the Office of Arts & Culture seeks to partner with arts and community groups to create a City where all artists, and communities 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. Organizations, groups and individual artists representing under-resourced communities including low-income, immigrant and refugee communities, and communities of color are encouraged to apply.
