Grants to King County, Washington organizations, teams, and individuals for public art projects that employ technology. Funding is intended for projects and activities that will bring cultural experiences to the local community. The project must offer an event or presentation that is open, publicized, and accessible to the public.

Applications will be evaluated on the following:

- Your history of accomplishments and relevant experience demonstrated through the work samples you submit.
- Originality of your project concept.
- Innovative use of one or more technologies in the creation and presentation of your project.
- The potential of your project to reach and impact King County audiences.
- The demonstrated feasibility of your project, and your ability to successfully realize it.
- How well your concept can be shared or implemented in a public, community setting.

Examples of public benefit include:

- Free performances, exhibitions, workshops, screenings, or readings.
- Events in the often under-served areas of suburban or rural King County, to low-income, youth and senior groups, individuals with limited physical abilities, recent immigrants, or residents of minority races or ethnicities.
- Free, electronically accessible materials, including literary publications, audio, or video recordings.

Projects must take place during the 2018 calendar year.

Tech Specific is available to individuals, groups, and organizations residing or located in King County - both at the time you apply and through the completion of your proposed project.

You must be 18 years of age or older at the time of application, or youth with adult representation.

Schools, school districts, religious institutions, current staff, board or Arts Advisory Committee members of 4Culture, and 2016 Tech Specific selection panelists are not eligible.

Project Eligibility:

- Project must offer an event or presentation that is open, publicized, and accessible to the public.
- Project must take place during the 2018 calendar year, within King County.
- Any physical or environmental artwork or installation must be temporary. Funded project activities must occur after the project has been selected for a grant and a contract has been signed.

Workshops make a very big difference in the success of your application—each year, 4Culture finds that the strongest applications come from people who have attended a workshop. Workshops are informal and drop-in, with no need to RSVP or register.

If your project is selected for funding, your grant manager will work with you to create a contract outlining the scope of your project and a payment schedule. You may receive a portion of your funds when you have signed a contract and begun your planning. You’ll receive the remainder of your funds once you have completed the public benefit component of your project.
