Grants to Washington individual artists, community-based groups, and neighborhood arts councils in eligible areas for arts and cultural events and festivals in local parks. Funding is intended to activate parks located in economically distressed and underserved neighborhoods in the City of Seattle. Grants 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 food-related costs (up to 10%).
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.

Organizations, groups, and individual artists representing under-resourced communities including low-income, immigrant and refugee communities, and communities of color are encouraged to apply.
