CityArtist Projects grant

CityArtist Projects program supports the development and presentation of work created by generative Seattle-based individual artists/curators. Awarded artists will need to offer a public presentation in city limits of Seattle. We support a broad range of artistic and cultural expression reflecting Seattle's diversity. 

This funding program focuses on different disciplines in alternating years. Priority is given to projects with clear public access as community impact and benefit. We encourage a broad range of artistic and cultural expression that reflects Seattle's diversity.

Manage your award

Want to get the word out about your arts or cultural event or exhibit? Here are some tips on sending out information to the public and local media.

Step 1. Gather all the details: who, what, where, when and why.

Step 2. Gather graphics for publicity. Gather photos, create a logo if necessary, work with a designer on the look and any printed materials.

Step 3. Write a press release and/or prepare a press kit and send to the media.


The Press Release

Press releases inform the media about your event and can inspire the media to publish a calendar listing or even cover the event. Click here for a description and example of the anatomy of a press release.

  • Try to let the media know what makes your event unique or relevant.
  • Be genuine. Exaggeration or inaccuracy will only hurt your chances of being a reliable media source. The more a press release reads like an actual news article, the better. Many smaller publications love releases they can print verbatim.
  • Press releases should look professional and be easy to read. Type double-spaced.
  • Make sure the organization's name, address, website and contact information is visible.
  • Include the media contact's name, direct phone line and e-mail address near the top of the first page.
  • Include a "pull date" (the last date of the event) near the top of the first page.
  • Include a headline that summarizes the event and invites people to read the details.
  • All the most pertinent information should be included in the first paragraph - the five W's. Who is presenting what, where and when? Why should people attend? Include information on how people can attend or buy tickets, locations of ticket venues or website, e-mail and/or box office phone-line information.
  • Additional paragraphs can provide more descriptive information about the event, artists involved and quotes.
  • Use your mission statement or general description of the organization at the end of the press release.
  • If the press release is longer than one page, write "-More-" at the bottom of each page. At the end of the last page, include "# # #" to indicate the end of the release.

The Press Kit

Press kits provide useful background information for members of the press writing previews or reviews of your arts or cultural event. A press kit should be organized in a folder and generally includes:

1) Organization Information (front to back on the left side of the folder)

  • Mission statement
  • Brief organizational history
  • Organizational brochure
  • Feature articles on the organization or lead staff
  • Board list
  • Business card for media contact

2) Specific Event Information (front to back on the right side of the folder)

  • Press release for the event
  • Photos or artwork related to the event
  • Event postcard or flyer
  • Event program
  • Artists' bios, if not in the program
  • Preview articles about the event

Note: Do not include reviews of the event or previous events in the press packet. Most reviewers do not want to be influenced by the opinions of others.


Online calendars

There are numerous websites with online events calendars to use to publicize your event. Here are few:


Daily and weekly papers

Send your press releases to local newspapers. Here are some of the dailies and weekly papers to begin with.


Neighborhood newspapers


Radio

Most radio stations accept a written public service announcement (PSA). Some will take a pre-recorded PSA. Check the website of the radio station you think best matches your audience. Many stations belong to the Puget Sound Broadcasters Association or Washington State Association of Broadcasters . Both organizations list links to their members.


Television

Seattle Channel , the city's municipal television channel, is committed to covering local arts and culture. Art Zone with Nancy Guppy on Seattle channel specifically covers the local art scene.

Local television stations are:

The gallery has a limited budget, but we are open to discussing additional programming, which may include a modest contribution toward those expenses, subject to available funding.
The gallery is committed to promoting our exhibitions through press releases, local and regional arts calendars, college PR resources, print and social media.
Installation date-range will be provided to the artist, and the artist is encouraged to hang their own show, though we are willing to work with you individually if assistance is needed. De-installation occurs after the closing reception concludes.

Description

Call for Poems: Death Penalty
The death penalty is not about whether people deserve to die for the crimes they commit. The real question of capital punishment in this country is, do we deserve to kill?
― Bryan Stevenson, Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption

A total of 110 executions have been carried out in Washington State and its predecessor territories since 1849. Five executions have taken place since the death penalty was re-enacted November 4, 1975. Eight men are currently on death row. They can choose death by lethal injection or hanging.

On February 11, 2014, Governor Jay Inslee instituted a moratorium on capital punishment. He and Attorney General Bob Ferguson introduced legislation to abolish the death penalty in Washington State on January 16, 2017.

Efforts to ban the death penalty fizzled out in the Washington State Legislature during the final week of the 2018 legislative session. Senate bill 6052 marked the most successful attempt in the past five years — and possibly ever — to erase the state’s death penalty and replace it with life in prison without parole. But it wasn’t enough in the end.

Status of states regarding the death penalty: with, 31; without, 19; in moratorium, including Washington State, 4.

Readings set in Port Townsend at Northwind Art Center Reading Series and Imprint Books / Writers’ Workshoppe in Port Townsend. More locations wanted.

How to Apply

CALL for POEMS—Repeal of DEATH PENALTY. In support of WA Governor Jay Inslee’s moratorium and a repeal of the death penalty, send poems for a chapbook for readings in WA. Poems for chapbook deadline: July 1, 2018. Deadline for OUT-OF-STATE and more WA poems for an anthology: Dec.31, 2018. In progress: anthology publisher and locations for readings. Contact & submissions--Sarah Zale: sarahzpoetry@gmail.com Send max. 3 poems as attachments with bio.

Description

Face it, things are bleak. Climate change, police brutality, gun violence, inequality, blatant racism, authoritarian populism threatening our democracy . . . you get the idea. It’s difficult not to feel discouraged and fearful. Outrage and fear are the primary notes struck in the press and amplified in the echo chambers of social media. It’s tempting for artists to just keep riffing on dystopian themes.

How about, instead, artists make a conscious effort to shape our reality towards “the good life”?

We are looking for artwork in which artists envision a hopeful future. Maybe your new and improved world is one of racial equality, gender equality, or the absence of these categories altogether. Maybe you imagine how we get around without burning fossil-fuels, or imagine new living spaces and configurations of cities and towns that nurture communities.

Pragmatism and fancy, macro and micro, cyberpunk and hippie, are equally welcome in this show. We are looking for work that doesn’t require the viewer to wonder what your vision is, i.e., art that is illustrative and representational rather than abstract.

How to Apply

Submit 3 examples of existing work and a sketch or two of the piece you would create just for this show, along with a brief verbal description of your vision for a more hopeful future and what that would look like.

Based on past work and the sketched outline of your idea, we'll invite artists to create work for the show.

Deadline for submissions: August 15, 2018
Notification: September 1, 2018
Images due for publicity: March 1, 2019
Delivery of work: April 2019

On the Boards (OtB) announces a call for artists to present solo choreographic work as part of a new festival in the 18/19 Season. Solo: A Festival of Dance (October 4-7, 2018) will explore the significance of this fundamental form and feature artists from around the country in a series of short live performances, video works, and discussions. Applications are due Monday, July 23, 2018, 11:59pm PST.

Solo: A Festival of Dance:
The solo is a choreographic technique that is consistently taught to dancers. There is an art to composing a dance, a specificity to the arrangement of movement, a technique of representing various movements, and a notation system. This fundamental building block of making a dance is particularly critical at this moment when so much of dance and contemporary performance is being called into question. It is important to refocus on the core of how we define dance as a medium and discipline.

A festival allows viewers, audiences, and artists to have access to a number of different performance works simultaneously. By creating a situation of watching multiple solos in a festival context we begin to open up the space for conversation about how this discipline and medium of dance and contemporary performance is being defined and explored with curatorial and institutional practices.

How to Apply

Eligibility
• Proposed performance must be approximately 20 minutes in length.
• Artist must be available for one day of tech between September 29–October 3, 2018
• Artist must be available for performance October 4–7, 2018
• International artists are encouraged to apply, but note that visa processing fees and assistance is limited.

Selected artists will receive an honorarium, use of existing light and sound equipment, staff support, and a travel stipend (if applicable).  


Submission Guidelines
Applications must be submitted by Monday, July 23, 11:59 pm (PST) via Submittable: http://bit.ly/Solo2018OpenCall

Application requirements
• A short description of the proposed solo performance (150 words max)
• A resume or short artist narrative (150 words max)
• A work sample of up to 5 minutes. A single sample can include multiple clips. Work samples can also include the proposed solo performance.

Selection Process
This festival is curated by Rachel Cook, Artistic Director; Clare Hatlo, Associate Producer; and Charles Smith, Director of Program Management. Selection is based on the clarity of themes and concepts, the depth of the movement vocabulary, use of space and time, and the overall composition of the piece.  

Notification of Results
All applicants will be notified of the status of their application no later than August 31, 2018.

Questions?
