The Office of Arts & Culture (ARTS) and Seattle Parks and Recreation (PARKS) are seeking artists to create temporary art installations or social practice activities for selected Seattle parks to activate and engage their surrounding communities.

ARTS is looking for up to seven artists/artist teams that are interested in engaging with the community and creating artworks or social practice activities that are culturally responsive. Artists who have experience working with residents from historically under-represented communities, including communities of color, immigrant and refugee communities to develop their artwork are encouraged to apply. The temporary two and three-dimensional artworks would most likely be installed in the warmer, drier months of June -September 2019 and will have durations of six to eight weeks.

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. Contact & submissions--Sarah Zale: sarahzpoetry@gmail.com Send max. 3 poems as attachments with bio.

Description

Organization Overview:
Since 1987, Seattle Arts & Lectures (SAL) has championed the literary arts by inspiring and engaging readers and writers of all generations in the greater Puget Sound region. We provide children and adults with opportunities to meet writers and cultural thinkers; to read and reflect upon novels, poems, and other literary works; to encounter new ideas and artistic creations; to develop their own writing; and to engage in meaningful and open discussions about literature, culture, and society. We believe these activities are essential to the development of a more creative, thoughtful, and democratic society. SAL fulfills its mission through these programs: Literary Arts Series, Poetry Series, Women You Need to Know Series, Journalism Series, Hinge, SAL Presents, Summer Book Bingo, and Writers in the Schools (WITS).

At SAL we value a diverse workforce and an inclusive culture. We are committed to equity, diversity, and inclusion in all areas of our work and encourage applications from all qualified individuals without regard to race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, national origin, marital status, citizenship, disability, and veteran status. We strongly encourage applications from members of underrepresented groups.

Position Overview:
The Marketing Coordinator works with the Associate Director to implement marketing, advertising, communications, and engagement efforts to increase the visibility and impact of the organization, our mission, and programs.

The Marketing Coordinator works with the media, coordinates print pieces and emails, contributes to our social media presence, works with partner organizations, and promotes SAL events to engage people of all ages and backgrounds to become or return as ticket-buyers, subscribers, donors, and friends. The Marketing Coordinator reports to the Associate Director and works primarily with the Public Programs team (including the Content Editor and Box Office Manager). The Public Programs team drives the outreach and sales for all ticketed events and the engagement around our free Summer Book Bingo program. While a large part of this position is focused on ticket sales and earned income, we are also seeking to diversify our audiences through creative and grassroots methods. The Marketing Coordinator also supports the Writers in the Schools (WITS) and Development teams.

The ideal candidate for this position has a love of the mission, an eye for detail and design, a passion for data and databases, a flair for writing and storytelling, and a commitment to racial equity and social justice. The ideal candidate is an extroverted book person who enjoys building relationships with a diverse span of people—from media partners and donors to grassroots organizations and individuals at events. The Marketing Coordinator must be able to know when to multi-task and when to dive deep; must be a team-player in a highly collaborative environment; to think both quantitatively and qualitatively; to look simultaneously at the big picture and to listen to the individual story.

• Represent the organization at the majority of SAL’s Public Programs, WITS, and fundraising events (approximately 35 events a year). Duties may include relationship-building, public relations, supporting media and community partner tables, handling press and partner comps, or other support roles as needed. Evening hours required; typically, 1-2 times/week September – May. See lectures.org for full schedule of events.

• This is a small team; we all pitch in to help each other out and our work is always evolving. The ideal candidate will be flexible, joyful, and up for the variety of kinds of work that a small non-profit encounters on the day-to-day.

Desired Qualifications:

The Office of Arts & Culture, in collaboration with Sawhorse Revolution, is excited to launch this Request for Proposals for cultural organizations and community groups.

Are you a Seattle-based cultural organization or a community group that is interested in owning a tiny cultural space, custom-designed and hand-built for your needs? Imagine a small but permanent outdoor stage. Or a puppet theater. Or a space for a tea ceremony, or a coffee ceremony. Would you like to launch Seattle’s tiniest art gallery? Or its smallest writers’ residency? Is there an ecological social justice and history-based mini-museum you’ve been hoping to open?

The Seattle Office of Arts & Culture invites local cultural and community organizations to submit proposals for a new (tiny) cultural structure. Whether you have your own site on which to build or are interested in building on a city-owned surplus property, the structure itself will belong to the community group or cultural organization outright.

The selected project will be designed and built by the award-winning nonprofit design/build studio Sawhorse Revolution, an organization that teaches teens carpentry and architecture through inspiring community projects. The Tiny Cultural Space will be a project of Sawhorse Revolution’s all-womxn design / build program, a process that will involve the organization chosen through this Request for Proposals and high school youth.

Description

apexart is accepting exhibition proposals for its NYC Open Call from October 1-31, 2018. Three winning proposals will be presented at apexart's NYC space as part of its 2019-20 exhibition season. Curators, artists, writers, and creative individuals, regardless of experience level or location, are invited to submit a proposal online.

The submission process
Proposals should describe focused, idea-driven, original group exhibitions. No biographical information, CVs, links, or images will be accepted. Submissions cannot exceed 500 words and must be submitted in English. Jurors rate proposals based on their content and the organizer’s ability to communicate, rather than by familiar names or past accomplishments.
The selection process
Rather than convene a small panel to review hundreds of ideas, apexart’s crowd-sourced voting system allows many jurors to individually review a subset of proposals. An international jury composed of 300+ individuals from a wide variety of professional backgrounds will rate the proposals. Proposals are made anonymous and randomized to make sure each receives the same consideration. apexart does not influence the results of the jury.

The results
The submitters of the three highest-ranked proposals each receive an exhibition budget of up to $10,000 and work closely with the apexart team to turn their ideas into apexart exhibitions. Exhibition organizers are expected and challenged to work within the funding provided to transform their winning proposals into compact, focused, noteworthy exhibitions. It is interesting to note how prescient our jurors have been, showing an extreme ability to forecast relevant exhibition themes and topics.

How to Apply

To submit an exhibition proposal, visit apexart.org/opencalls.php between October 1-31, 2018.
