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 2014 cycle will award grants to artists working in literary, media/film and visual arts. We encourage a broad range of artistic and cultural expression that reflects Seattle's diversity.
For the 2013 cycle CityArtists awarded $160,000 to 31 individual artists working in the dance, music and theater arts. Thirty 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.
