Individual artists are the core of a creative community. The CityArtist Projects program provides funding for Seattle-based individual artists to develop and present their work. The program focuses on different disciplines in alternating years. The 2015 cycle will award grants to artists working in dance, music and theater arts. We encourage a broad range of artistic and cultural expression that reflects Seattle's diversity.
The 2014 cycle of CityArtists awarded over $160,000 to 33 individual artists working in literary, media/film and visual arts. Fifty-five percent of the artists funded are first-time recipients. A peer-review panel evaluates proposals based on criteria such as artistic merit, public access or impact and innovation.
