Cultural Space Liaison
Cultural facilities, including performing arts centers, museums, cinemas, galleries, music venues, and workshop and rehearsal spaces, create visibility for the arts and function as community gathering places. They provide cultural opportunities for residents and visitors, economic vitality to neighborhoods and surrounding businesses, and homes for artists and arts groups. They are the anchors for our creative neighborhoods, the portals through which our neighbors engage with the arts.
The Cultural Facilities Program is a new program designed to support Seattle-based organizations with facilities-based capital projects. The program awards one-time funding to Seattle arts, heritage, cultural and arts service organizations with projects such as facility renovations or completing the final phase of new facilities.
The majority of funding for the facility's project beyond this grant must be in place before applying. Eligible organizations must have at least a three-year operating history as a legally established not-for-profit organization, have control of the facility through ownership or a longer-term lease, and demonstrate a record of ongoing artistic or cultural accomplishments in Seattle. Projects must be able to take place and be completed between November 2013 and December 2014.
