Cultural Facilities Fund

The Cultural Facilities Fund seeks to reverse the City's lack of investment in cultural organizations representing communities of color. The program awards funding to Seattle arts, heritage, cultural and arts service organizations with facility projects that address more racially equitable access for those who have been (and are) excluded from the City's cultural infrastructure-building. Communities of color have had the least access to controlling cultural space. This fund will prioritize projects that eliminate this disparity.

In 2018 the City is investing in a new online Citywide grants platform that will produce a better experience for applicants and aligns with race and social justice values by providing more equity in opportunities for artists and communities of color, is a major undertaking for ARTS and the City.

While the new grant platform is being built, ARTS' current grant platform, CultureGrants Online (CGO) will no longer be supported by WESTAF - as of June 30, 2018. This means that:

  • a number of grants will be hosted on interim platforms
  • organizations and individuals who have application material in the CGO system, will need to archive their materials. Log into your account at Login to CultureGrants Online to archive.


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.

Description

More than eighty artists have created installations for Eastern State Penitentiary’s cellblocks and yards. Some of these installations were among the most successful programming the site has presented, and brought perspectives and approaches that would not have been possible in traditional historic site programming.

We seek installations that will explore Eastern State Penitentiary’s history, and evoke a broad range of emotions. We seek installations that will make connections between the complex history of this building and today’s criminal justice system and corrections policies.

We want to humanize these difficult subjects with personal stories and distinct points of view. We want to hear new voices—voices that might emphasize the political, or humorous, or bluntly personal. We want our visitors to be challenged with provocative questions, and we’re prepared to face some provocative questions ourselves.

In short, we seek memorable, thought-provoking additions to our public programming, combined with true excellence in artistic practice. If our definition of this program seems broad, it’s because we’re open to approaches that we haven’t yet imagined.

Surprise us.

Description

The Painting Center, an artist-run gallery in Chelsea, announces a call for entries for its juried summer exhibition JuxtaPositions. We invite artists of all stripes to submit work that excites by forging new connections, and surprises by discovering unexpected juxtapositions.

Creativity isn’t only about making entirely new things out of whole cloth. The creative process can involve seeing old things in new contexts; joining things that previously seemed completely unrelated; or turning conventions, tropes and ideas upside down and inside out. Sometimes, these juxtapositions are humorous; sometimes, they are enigmatic, or striking; sometimes, they are shocking. High and low, serious and funny, real and fake, observed and invented, political and personal…these are all choices an artist can make in his or her work…but they aren’t necessarily mutually exclusive.

In a culture that is stuffed full of imagery, icons, argument, products, brands and just plain junk, can we invent something new by mining, reframing, re-contextualizing, and re-conceiving some of the ideas and objects that make up the cultural moment in which we live?

How to Apply

JuxtaPositions is open to all media.

Exhibition Dates: June 19 - July 14, 2018

Deadline for Submission: May 10, 2018

Notification Date: May 18, 2018

Overview:
The Helen S. Smith Gallery on Green River College’s main campus was named in honor of the college Foundation’s first President. In addition to being one of the college’s founding members, she was known as a strong advocate for the arts in the community. Now 50 years and counting, the gallery continues to carry on her legacy by presenting compelling and innovative exhibitions featuring emerging and established Northwest Artists throughout the year. The gallery also highlights works by Green River student artists twice annually.

What we are looking for: As a gallery on an academic campus, we are interested in hosting solo and group curated exhibitions that contribute to or engage social, cultural or conceptual dialogue. The Visual Arts Program at the college features painting, drawing, ceramics, photography and design. Though we favor exhibitions which highlight media being taught on campus, we are open to proposals that employ wider experimentation.

How to Apply

GUIDELINES
Project Description: In a cover letter, please introduce yourself and your artistic background. Please include a working title for your proposal or the exact title you plan to use for the exhibition. Please include a brief artist’s statement and describe exactly what we should expect from your exhibition. Address themes/content as well as media. Optional: you would like to address the exhibition more specifically in terms of how the space will be used, here is our gallery floorplan. Further, please also indicate if the work samples submitted are new work being created for the exhibition or if they are past work examples of your direction. Name your cover letter Last Name, Cover Letter.pdf.
Work Samples: Please submit up to 15 high quality JPGs (no larger than 2MB). Label files as 01, Last Name, title.jpg, 02, Last Name, title.jpg, etc. If you are proposing a group exhibition, samples of works by all participating artists should be included to provide a compelling overview of the exhibition proposed.

You will be able to upload your files to this site provided they are under 2MB each. Once uploaded, you will not be able to see or change them.

THE FINE PRINT
The Helen S. Smith Gallery invites artists to present a closing artist talk or panel discussion with each exhibition. We typically provide a stipend for your participation in this event. As a general rule, artists are responsible for shipping and any associated fees with preparing the work for exhibition. 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.

The Helen S. Smith Gallery does not take a commission on works sold. All inquiries regarding sales will be forwarded directly to the artist.

Now 50 years and counting, the gallery continues to carry on her legacy by presenting compelling and innovative exhibitions featuring emerging and established Northwest Artists throughout the year. The gallery also highlights works by Green River student artists twice annually.

Further, please also indicate if the work samples submitted are new work being created for the exhibition or if they are past work examples of your direction.

You will be able to upload your files to this site provided they are under 2MB each. Once uploaded, you will not be able to see or change them.

THE FINE PRINT
The Helen S. Smith Gallery invites artists to present a closing artist talk or panel discussion with each exhibition. We typically provide a stipend for your participation in this event. As a general rule, artists are responsible for shipping and any associated fees with preparing the work for exhibition. 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.
The Helen S. Smith Gallery does not take a commission on works sold. All inquiries regarding sales will be forwarded directly to the artist.

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.

Our Program:

SMP is a non-profit that provides an innovative combination of weekly group music instruction and one-on-one mentoring, working with elementary students who attend low-income schools in Seattle’s Central District. We offer individual music lessons and ensemble experience to over 100 students, twice weekly. We believe that music is a powerful tool for inspiring and empowering young people, and that music-learning opportunities should be available to all children on an equitable basis.

Seattle Music Partners cultivates a diverse and vibrant music-making community by providing youth with free music instruction and one-on-one mentoring to eliminate racial and economic barriers to quality music education.

Our unique program matches skilled volunteers from the community, one-on-one, with students who wish to learn how to play an instrument. SMP students also attend weekly group lessons, led by our trained teaching artists, to gain ensemble experience. Instruments, music books, music stands, and even transportation are provided free of charge.

Students showcase their new skills by performing in several recitals each year.

Seeking board members for non-profit music education collaborative:

We seek community members who are committed to music education and furthering the love, knowledge and practice of music to serve as founding board members in launching Bellevue Music Collaborative as a preeminent teaching facility for the Greater Eastside.

Bellevue Music Collaborative is made up of professional music educators who envision a community where music lessons are accessible to everyone regardless of income level, where independent music teachers thrive, creatively and economically, and where students benefit from excellent music education and collaboration with other young artists.

Please continue reading for additional information about BMC. To contact us, please email laura.shepherd@bellevuemusiccollaborative.org

Our Founding members are: Elizabeth Samse, Eric Samse, Laura Shepherd, and Lisa Kay Deeter. Please read more about us: https://www.bellevuemusiccollaborative.org/instructors/

Our website:

https://www.facebook.com/bellevue.music.collaborative/

Our Mission and values:

MISSION
BMC closes the opportunity gap for out-of-school music education by supporting independent teaching artists and providing a centralized scholarship fund for the greater Eastside community.

VALUES

We believe music and music education is of value in all aspects of our community, and to that end want to see students of all economic backgrounds access music lessons.

We seek to develop, nurture, and grow a community of musicians through expert teaching and mentorship.

We strive to create a collaborative musical atmosphere where musicians of varying skill levels can confidently gather and perform together as individuals or in ensemble.

We recognize and appreciate that the study and development of artistic sensibilities and personal growth is a process that never ends. To that end, we endeavor to provide each student with the solid foundational framework that will lead to the finest expressions of musical thought and performance.

We value our own musical heritage as the beginning for musical study while also incorporating other musical cultures into our curriculum to increase musical understanding and development.

We understand that communities are vibrant when individuals have the freedom to create and be autonomous, and our structure is intended to be a support rather than a hindrance to our members.

As a result of these shared values, we have created a non-profit organization which is focused on supporting the independent teachers who impact so many individual students.

Description

4Culture seeks an artist to serve as Artist in Residence (AiR) with the King County Water and Land Resources Division’s Stormwater Services Section (the Section) on a part-time basis for 13 months, September 5, 2018—September 28, 2019.

BUDGET: $30,000 artist fee, $20,000 art material and production costs, $5,000 travel contingency (budgets are inclusive of Washington State Sales/Use Tax, as relevant).

ELIGIBILITY: Open to artists who (1) reside in WA, OR, or CA; (2) are fluent in Spanish and English or are Latino/Latinx identifying; and (3) have specialties in teaching, social engagement, or curatorial practice. Artists in all disciplines may apply, including performing, literary, visual, time-based media, and social practice.

APPLICATION: submission of an online application is required for this opportunity.

DEADLINE: Friday, June 8, 2018 by 4:00 pm PDT.

The AiR will work as a creative strategist and collaborator with Section staff to understand the significance of stormwater and produce art experiences that reveal its connections to water quality and public health and that foster a sense of personal connection and collective responsibility.

The AiR will work with and for two audiences: (1) Section staff, to offer new ways of thinking about strategic planning, communication and inclusive engagement; and (2) the general public, with a focus on how Latino and Latinx communities perceive and relate to stormwater and associated issues. In both cases, the AiR will center the role of art in fostering dialogue and social change.

The most common non-English language spoken in King County is Spanish, and translation of public communication materials by the County into the Spanish language is increasingly common. The Section seeks to move beyond language translation to cultural competence and responsiveness, and to build on national findings that Latinos are especially ready to take action for climate change.

The Residency deliverables include both fixed and flexible elements:

-Artist office hours (average 48 hours a month).
-Input on Section strategic planning, branding, and reporting.
-Metrics for success co-developed with the Section and community members.
-Latino and Latinx community surveys, focus groups, and workshops.
-Artist-designed objects, experiences, or campaigns, with media to be determined*.

*A wide range of artistic methods, media, and outcomes are possible, including performances, publications, film and video, events, and installations. There is specific interest in exploring artist-led tours that bring members of the public face-to-face with sites and impacts, as well as projects that both communicate and offer functional remediation.

ELIGIBILITY: open to professional artists and artist-led teams residing in the United States or British Columbia.

DEADLINE: Thursday, June 21, 2018 at 4:00 pm PDT

Public Art 4Culture will manage this art opportunity, from artist selection through onsite installation, on behalf of the Washington State Convention Center.

OPPORTUNITY
The intersection of Ninth Avenue and Pike Street in downtown Seattle presents an opportunity for a large-scale artwork that can enhance the pedestrian experience and create a memorable and dynamic connection between the existing Washington State Convention Center (WSCC) and its new Addition. While this site is not part of the Addition re-development, it does offer the possibility for an artist to envision an urban “room” that creates a space of its own, while supporting other civic developments and connections. The site is an important location in the context of the city’s Pike Pine Renaissance: Act One initiative. The WSCC and this location are also adjacent to Freeway Park, a 5.2-acre masterwork designed by Lawrence Halprin and Angela Danadjieva. Freeway Park is currently undergoing a community engagement and schematic design process to envision and create improvements to connectivity, visibility, and public safety.

To build the Addition project, the WSCC requested several street and alley vacations from the city. In exchange, the project provided a package of public benefits, including three significant public artworks. This opportunity at Ninth and Pike is one of those public benefit artwork sites. All of the public benefit artwork areas are perceived as zones of experience, allowing the selected artists the broadest opportunity to define the intent, materials, and possibility of the artwork.

ELIGIBILITY: Open to professional artists and artist-led teams residing in the Pacific Northwest region: WA, OR, ID, BC.

DEADLINE: Thursday, June 21, 2018 at 4:00 pm PDT.

Public Art 4Culture will manage this art opportunity, from artist selection through onsite installation, on behalf of the Washington State Convention Center (WSCC).

OPPORTUNITIES + CONTEXT
Boren Avenue is a four-lane, fast-moving thoroughfare. The frontage of the WSCC Addition is a steep block rising from north to south at about a 12% grade. The goal of the artwork here is to create a more pedestrian friendly edge condition and experience along Boren while also helping to promote connections to adjacent neighborhoods, particularly Seattle’s Capitol Hill. The landscape, lighting, seating, and building facade are all potential elements of a collaborative artwork opportunity. The selected artist will be encouraged to think holistically about this site as place with the other members of the design team: LMN Architects and GGN Landscape Architects.

The Olive Way site exists in proximity to the interior elevator banks of the Addition. This location presents a collaborative opportunity to engage the kinetic/lighting potential of the moving elevators and the streetscape. This streetscape experience is setting the stage for future mixed-use development across the street at the co-development sites and beyond to the Denny Triangle and South Lake Union.

The artists selected to design site-specific artwork for the Boren and Olive Way sites need to maximize their interaction with the rest of the design team. The selected artists will need to begin design work immediately.

To build the Addition project, the WSCC requested several street and alley vacations from the city. In exchange, the project provided a package of public benefits, including three significant public artworks. These opportunities at Boren Avenue and Olive Way are two of those public benefit artwork sites. All of the public benefit artwork areas are perceived as zones of experience, allowing the selected artists the broadest opportunity to define the intent, materials and possibility of the artwork.

Verum Ultimum Art Gallery
Verum Ultimum Gallery is thrilled to invite artists to explore, "Abstract Catalyst" for its 5th year and enter work that is any interpretation of the call. Abstract Catalyst takes on a distinct edge that seems to catapult it in a different direction than their winter Abstract show, Abstract Sanctuary. As always, the intention of the theme is never to drive the work, rather have it serve as an impetus to discover unique visions and showcase them. All mediums are welcome. What will be revealed this year? All mediums are welcome. Verum Ultimum Gallery invites artists to showcase their talent within this expressive genre and propel a new vision in the 5th Annual Abstract Catalyst Exhibition.
