The CityArtist program provides project funding for the development and presentation of original work by independent Seattle artists. Awards may support new works, works in progress, re-mounted or finished work. Projects must include public presentations in Seattle. We encourage a broad range of artistic and cultural expression that reflects Seattle's diversity.
