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.

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.

Fluke is seeking photography that embraces the unlikely, advantageous and chance occurrence. We want photographers to send in a portfolio of work, that encompass and respond to chance encounters and occurrences. Work entered to this project will be featured in issue four and across our website and social media.

Digital photography is a precise constantly improving tool, the image about to be captured is known whilst it's being taken, analogue methods offered a much rawer, more unpredictable process resulting in often unexpected outcomes. We are after work that applies an unpredictable approach, whether it's digital or analogue were looking for shots taken in the effort for exploration and experimentation, or just capturing a moment of coincident.

Images submitted must be at least 300 DPI

There are no other entry requirements, this competition is open to all.

Description

We are encouraging artists to respond to to the current socio-political environment of today. We are interested in artists creating responsive, challenging work that addresses cultural power structures, social challenges and environmental issues.

The current political landscape seems rife with uncertainty, unpredictability and a certain amount of fragility. From ‘strong and stable’ and ‘brexit means brexit’ to ‘we will make america great again’ and ‘its fake news’ nonsensical unstable political sound bites seems to be what is keeping the political elite trudging forwards. Corruption and climate change denial is dominating current politics, we are looking for artists that challenge the socio-political climate that has formed in the wake of the brexit referendum, the Trump election and of course broader global political concern.

Images submitted must be at least 300 DPI
Non-refundable submission fee of £8
Deadlines for entry is the 30th January 2019
There are no other entry requirements, this submission is open to all.

Selected entries will be featured in issue four, however all work entered to this project will be featured in an online gallery on our website, after the launch of issue four.

Description

Mineral School is an artists residency located in a former 1947 elementary school near Mt. Rainier, in Mineral, Washington. During 2019, we're offering four two-week residency periods to screenwriters, poetry and prose writers, and visual artists, providing accepted applicants with space and time to create new work without the interruptions of normal life and with the bonus of healthy meals prepared by culinary volunteers using locally-grown organic food whenever possible. The May 2019 residency is screenwriter-specific, in partnership with the Rainier Independent Film Festival. During September 2019, we'll offer one one-week residency to 4 writers or artists who are parents of children under 18, through support from the Sustainable Arts Foundation. All other sessions are mixed-resident.

Each resident will live in an 800-square foot former classroom that offers peekaboo views of Mineral Lake and Mt. Rainier, and that will double as their writing studio, with desk and chair, lighting, bookcase, and lots of chalkboards. Visual artist residents will be offered space to work outside of their classrooms (unless they wish or want work in their medium in the room where they sleep). The school building has shared bathrooms with showers. Residents are served all meals daily (plus 24/7 access to a snack fridge and coffee/tea station), and will have the opportunity to share work with the public. Mineral features a swimmable fishing lake, boat rentals, a bar, a B&B, a general store, churches, a post office, and many deer. It's a 25-minute drive to Mt. Rainier National Park.

Visiting authors and artists: During each two-week residency, special guests will visit and present work. During May, Seattle-based screenwriter, film critic, and film festival curator Warren Etheredge will talk craft with screenwriters. During other sessions, alumni presenters will visit and bring with them a special guest artist they've chosen to introduce to Mineral.

Resident presentations: If they wish, residents can share with one another and the public at our monthly residents' "show and tell" held during residency. These presentations are held after dinner in our library/multi-purpose room and are casual dessert potlucks.

We are accepting applications from December 15, 2018, through February 15, 2019 (Midnight, PST) for 2019 residencies. Notification will be given at least two months before the residency period for which you've applied.



2019 RESIDENCY DATES

Residency sessions are held during the following time periods.

Two-week residency periods:

May 5-May 19, 2019: Screenwriters Residency (screenwriters only)

June 16-June 30, 2019: Mixed-genre Residency

July 14-July 28, 2019: Mixed-genre Residency

August 18-September 1, 2019: Mixed-genre Residency

One-week parents' residency:

September 21-September 29, 2019: Mixed-genre Residency (parents only)



FELLOWSHIP OPTIONS

Mineral School offers a mix of paid and funded residency spots. Our fellowships are competitive and we try to keep our paid spots inexpensive and accessible. If you'd like to pursue a fellowship, please know that on your fellowship application you can choose whether or not to remain in consideration for a paid spot should we be unable to grant you a funded one. We designed applications this way so you pay only one fee to apply but are juried as broadly as desired. (In other words, don't apply for both a fellowship and a paid spot -- just apply for the fellowship and mark that you'd remain in consideration for a paid spot should you not receive a fellowship.)

We're pleased to offer a total of 10 fellowships in 2019.

June Dodge Writing Fellows (3 total) attend a mixed-genre summe residency session for free and receive travel assistance from any point in or between Portland, OR, and Seattle, WA, in addition to room and board, visits by presenting authors, and opportunities to share work publicly. Fellowships are open to writers from the Pacific Northwest (AK, ID, MT, OR, WA) and Western Canada (British Columbia, Alberta, Yukon).

The RIFF Fellow (May 2019) attends the screenwriters' session for free and receives travel assistance (from any point in or between Portland, OR, and Seattle, WA), room and board, special access to the Rainier Independent Film Festival in Ashford, WA from May 17 to May 19, and the opportunity to share work publicly. This fellowship is open to screenwriters who identify as women of color and/or as LGBTQ and who have either completed one feature-length screen play or produced a short film.

The Erin Donovan Writing Fellow (August 2019) is for an emerging woman writer of poetry or prose living in Massachusetts, New York, Oregon, or Washington, who is 40 or older, and whose writing expresses both wit and compassion. This fellowship covers the residency fee (room and board, guest presenters, options to present) and includes travel reimbursement up to $175 (for OR/WA residents) or up to $400 (for MA/NY residents). This fellowship is supported by loved ones of Erin Donovan, an Oregon fiction writer, teacher, and outdoors woman who died in 2015.

The Mona Lisa Roberts Visual Arts Fellowship supports a visual artist (graphic novelist/comics artist, painter, photographer, fabric artist, paper artist, etc.) who self-identifies as LGBTQ and lives in the Pacific Northwest (Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington) or the provinces of western Canada (British Columbia, Alberta, Yukon). This fellowship funds a two-week residency during summer (June, July, or August) and transit from Seattle, Portland, or points between. Depending on the medium and artist's preference, they can work in the studio room where they sleep, spread out in the gym, or improvise outdoors. Feel free to contact us about space needs before applying.

SAF Parent Fellowships (September 2019) support four parent artists from anywhere in North America. Accepted artists attend for free and receive travel assistance from any point in or between Portland, OR, and Seattle, WA (including from those cities' airports, and Amtrak or Bolt bus stops), in addition to room and board, visits by presenting artists, and opportunities to share work.



PAID RESIDENCY OPTIONS

We're pleased to offer 10 nominally-priced residencies in 2019.

Two-week residencies for screenwriters (May) cost $550 and include room, board, opportunities for public presentation, a craft seminar with Warren Etheredge, all-access tickets to the 3-day Rainier Independent Film Festival in nearby Ashford, and local rides between RIFF and Mineral as needed. Travel to Mineral isn't included; travel from points between Portland, OR, and Seattle, WA (aka, along the I-5 corridor) to Mineral may be arranged for a small fee ($20-30/each way).

Two-week residencies for poets and writers cost $425 and include room, board, presentations by guest writer and artists, opportunities for public presentation, and lots of love. Travel isn't included; travel from points between Portland, OR, and Seattle, WA (aka, along the I-5 corridor) to Mineral may be arranged for a small fee ($20-30/each way).

Visual artist residencies for painters, illustrators, graphic novelists, makers, photographers, fabric artists, paper artists, and other media cost $425 and include room, board, presentations by guest writers/artists, opportunities for public presentation, and lots of love. Visual artists bring their own materials and may use as studio space their room, the school's grounds, covered patio, the gym stage, or plein air sites of their choice; we have ample tables and space which can be configured around your needs. If in doubt about whether you can accomplish your medium in our space, write to us before applying at mineralschoolarts@gmail.com. Travel is not included; travel from points between Portland, OR, and Seattle, WA, to Mineral may be arranged ($20-30/each way).

SHA is seeking 1-2 qualified artist(s) to participate in a One Year Artist Residency associated with the redevelopment of Yesler Terrace (YT).

This program is part of a multi-year initiative that brings arts and culture programs to the Yesler community. Artists are defined as dynamic thinkers interested in engaging with the world through creative forms. Artists and teaching artists working in all disciplines, such as visual arts, performance, dance, and literary arts, are encouraged to apply.

AIR duties include:

• Creating experiences, enabling collaboration, and building relationships through direct involvement with Yesler neighborhood residents. AIR programs may include but are not limited to community conversations, performances, social actions, events, temporary art installations, and workshops; and serve a range of Yesler community members;
• Working with neighborhood service providers and surrounding area institutions to foster new relationships and strengthen community; and
• Helping to consider and respond to the challenges and needs of the Yesler community at large as it navigates a period of major development and transformation.

The residency prioritizes engagement with process and ideas over the AIR’s individual production of art work. Residency activities will be developed by the AIR in consultation with SHA staff and Yesler stakeholders over the period of the residency and should rise to the needs of this particular community. For example, artists might work towards developing greater social cohesion, helping to recapture a sense belonging and ownership in a neighborhood of culturally- and economically-diverse occupants, or helping position cultural pride and heritage as positive drivers of community development as the neighborhood evolves.

Residency activities may take place at various sites around the Yesler neighborhood, including communal indoor and outdoor spaces, gardens, and resident buildings.

Scope of Work:
The selected AIR Artists shall be asked to perform the following tasks:

• Conduct research related to YT history and culture, including through resident interviews, meeting with SHA staff, and reviewing available media and materials related to YT and the YT redevelopment project
• Attend regular community meetings and celebrations as both participant and provider
• Work with SHA staff and planning teams to develop, implement, and assess artist programs for neighborhood audiences, and other SHA communities, as needed. Connect with other community artists and partners.
• Directly engage YT and surrounding area community members and stakeholders at various points during the planning, implementation and at end of their respective project.
• Integrate the interests and preferences of YT residents into all activities as appropriate
• Contribute to supporting activities associated with the overall art program for YT, such as project evaluation and presentations of work to varying stakeholders
• Manage administrative aspects of the position, including budgets and schedule management, program proposals, regular programmatic meetings with coordinating SHA staff, and documenting project activities for programmatic purposes

Schedule: It is anticipated that the work may begin between February and May 2019 and will continue for a period of 12 months. Exact start and end dates, as well as position hours and time, are flexible and will be mutually determined by the AIR and SHA. Each AIR is expected to commit to the equivalent of a 15 hour per week commitment over time. Consistent and flexible availability for community engagement activities is strongly encouraged.

Estimated Amount: The Seattle Housing Authority has a $24,000.00 budget per AIR (contract) which is inclusive of artist’s fees, permits (if applicable), all associated program costs, applicable City of Seattle licensing costs and/or Washington State sales/use tax. This residency program does not include AIR housing.
