Youth Arts grant

Youth Arts grants support equitable access to arts and cultural learning opportunities for Seattle's Middle and High School aged youth. Programs occur outside of school hours and are led by experienced teaching artists working in communities to increase arts and cultural opportunities for young people from diverse racial and socio-economic backgrounds.  

Data shows that the greatest disparities between young people who have access to arts education and those who don't are based on race, socio economics, home language and disabilities. As with all of the Office of Arts & Culture's Creative Youth Programs, Youth Arts prioritizes programs serving young people within these demographics.

In 2018 the City is investing in a new online Citywide grants platform that will produce a better experience for applicants and aligns with race and social justice values by providing more equity in opportunities for artists and communities of color, is a major undertaking for ARTS and the City.

While the new grant platform is being built, ARTS' current grant platform, CultureGrants Online (CGO) will no longer be supported by WESTAF - as of June 30, 2018. This means that:

  • a number of grants will be hosted on interim platforms
  • organizations and individuals who have application material in the CGO system, will need to archive their materials. Log into your account at Login to CultureGrants Online to archive.

Want to get the word out about your arts or cultural event or exhibit? Here are some tips on sending out information to the public and local media.

Step 1. Gather all the details: who, what, where, when and why.

Step 2. Gather graphics for publicity. Gather photos, create a logo if necessary, work with a designer on the look and any printed materials.

Step 3. Write a press release and/or prepare a press kit and send to the media.


The Press Release

Press releases inform the media about your event and can inspire the media to publish a calendar listing or even cover the event. Click here for a description and example of the anatomy of a press release.

  • Try to let the media know what makes your event unique or relevant.
  • Be genuine. Exaggeration or inaccuracy will only hurt your chances of being a reliable media source. The more a press release reads like an actual news article, the better. Many smaller publications love releases they can print verbatim.
  • Press releases should look professional and be easy to read. Type double-spaced.
  • Make sure the organization's name, address, website and contact information is visible.
  • Include the media contact's name, direct phone line and e-mail address near the top of the first page.
  • Include a "pull date" (the last date of the event) near the top of the first page.
  • Include a headline that summarizes the event and invites people to read the details.
  • All the most pertinent information should be included in the first paragraph - the five W's. Who is presenting what, where and when? Why should people attend? Include information on how people can attend or buy tickets, locations of ticket venues or website, e-mail and/or box office phone-line information.
  • Additional paragraphs can provide more descriptive information about the event, artists involved and quotes.
  • Use your mission statement or general description of the organization at the end of the press release.
  • If the press release is longer than one page, write "-More-" at the bottom of each page. At the end of the last page, include "# # #" to indicate the end of the release.

The Press Kit

Press kits provide useful background information for members of the press writing previews or reviews of your arts or cultural event. A press kit should be organized in a folder and generally includes:

1) Organization Information (front to back on the left side of the folder)

  • Mission statement
  • Brief organizational history
  • Organizational brochure
  • Feature articles on the organization or lead staff
  • Board list
  • Business card for media contact

2) Specific Event Information (front to back on the right side of the folder)

  • Press release for the event
  • Photos or artwork related to the event
  • Event postcard or flyer
  • Event program
  • Artists' bios, if not in the program
  • Preview articles about the event

Note: Do not include reviews of the event or previous events in the press packet. Most reviewers do not want to be influenced by the opinions of others.


Online calendars

There are numerous websites with online events calendars to use to publicize your event. Here are few:


Daily and weekly papers

Send your press releases to local newspapers. Here are some of the dailies and weekly papers to begin with.


Neighborhood newspapers


Radio

Most radio stations accept a written public service announcement (PSA). Some will take a pre-recorded PSA. Check the website of the radio station you think best matches your audience. Many stations belong to the Puget Sound Broadcasters Association or Washington State Association of Broadcasters . Both organizations list links to their members.


Television

Seattle Channel , the city's municipal television channel, is committed to covering local arts and culture. Art Zone with Nancy Guppy on Seattle channel specifically covers the local art scene.

call for poems to end death penalty in WA

Deadline to Apply

12/31/2018

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.

8/15/2018

Description

Face it, things are bleak. Climate change, police brutality, gun violence, inequality, blatant racism, authoritarian populism threatening our democracy . . . you get the idea. It’s difficult not to feel discouraged and fearful. Outrage and fear are the primary notes struck in the press and amplified in the echo chambers of social media. It’s tempting for artists to just keep riffing on dystopian themes.

How about, instead, artists make a conscious effort to shape our reality towards “the good life”?

We are looking for artwork in which artists envision a hopeful future. Maybe your new and improved world is one of racial equality, gender equality, or the absence of these categories altogether. Maybe you imagine how we get around without burning fossil-fuels, or imagine new living spaces and configurations of cities and towns that nurture communities.

Pragmatism and fancy, macro and micro, cyberpunk and hippie, are equally welcome in this show. We are looking for work that doesn’t require the viewer to wonder what your vision is, i.e., art that is illustrative and representational rather than abstract.

How to Apply

Submit 3 examples of existing work and a sketch or two of the piece you would create just for this show, along with a brief verbal description of your vision for a more hopeful future and what that would look like.

Based on past work and the sketched outline of your idea, we'll invite artists to create work for the show.

Deadline for submissions: August 15, 2018
Notification: September 1, 2018
Images due for publicity: March 1, 2019

Description

ArtsFund invites King County artists at all levels of practice and community members to submit images of finished artwork that creatively illustrates the positive impact arts can have in our community.

In King County, arts are doing tremendous work to advance community priorities, but this impact is not well understood by many outside the arts sector. In the fall of 2018, ArtsFund is releasing a Social Impact Study documenting the positive impacts of the arts in advancing community priorities and is seeking pre-existing or newly created artworks to illustrate the report.

Submissions are invited in each of the following areas:

-Youth and Education
-Health and Wellness
-Neighborhood Vitality

Arts and arts-based strategies are valuable tools in addressing racial and social injustice and bridging the cultural divide. Submissions that represent the diversity of King County are strongly encouraged.

Through research, data, stories, and the artworks selected, ArtsFund’s study will show that arts involvement improves academic and social outcomes for youth across socio-economic status; in and out of medical settings, arts have direct impact on individual and community health, leading to longer lives, better lived; and arts in neighborhoods are linked to positive social determinants and community cohesion. ArtsFund is looking for submissions that will symbolize and provide an artistic narrative for each area, showing why arts and culture matter in King County.

AWARD
One artist in each area will received a $1,000 award for the non-exclusive reproduction rights. These three selected works will be featured in publications and presentations related to the study, both digital and online, as well as on the ArtsFund website.

Additional submissions in each category will also be selected to be featured on the ArtsFund website in an online gallery.

DEADLINE
Submissions will be accepted starting at 9:00 am PDT on Tuesday, July 17, 2018. Applications are due by August 21, 2018 at 11:59pm PDT. Applications submitted after deadline will not be accepted.

Strong submissions will not just be documentation of work that fits each theme, but an artistic representation of it. The strongest submissions will be images that celebrate the arts’ role in the particular area and that would provide strong visuals online, in print, or projected.

Artworks that contain graphic depictions of violence, sexually explicit imagery, and/or nudity are discouraged.

Note: Artworks may need to be resized or cropped depending on the medium in which it will be used; however the work will not be substantially altered from its original form. In all instances, the work will be displayed with full attribution. See call rules for more information.

SELECTION AND NOTIFICATION
A three-member panel will make the selection:

-Pete Dapper, Founder and Creative Director, Dapper Ad
-Bryan Ohno, Artist and President & Director of Bryan Ohno Gallery
-Alane Simons, Artist and Photographer

The panel will select three awardees, one in each area, who will receive $1,000. These three artworks, as well as additional selected artworks, will also be featured on ArtsFund’s website in an online gallery. All notifications regarding application status will be provided via email. Winners and those selected for inclusion in the online gallery will be notified of the selection panel’s decisions in early September 2018. The results will not otherwise be made public until the release of ArtsFund’s Social Impact Study in October, 2018.

Description

The Greater Seattle Bureau of Fearless Ideas (BFI) launched its programs nearly 13 years ago, in October 2005. BFI believes that the power of words, well-written and well-spoken, can open doors to important opportunities. Our writing, publishing, and after-school tutoring programs prepare students, ages 6 to 18, to succeed in our diverse world by developing strong writing skills, championing different communication styles, and helping kids share their stories. All programs are free and open to families from any socio-economic background (http://www.fearlessideas.org).

The Job
We are seeking an Executive Director who can embrace the qualities that have made BFI a valued and successful organization focused on inclusivity, creativity, and community. This person is able to inspire creativity in children, volunteers, and staff; encourage kids to let their individuality shine; and teach them that even their zaniest ideas are worth writing down and sharing with others.

We are seeking a visionary Executive Director with well-honed nonprofit leadership and management skills and experience helping nonprofits thrive and grow. Our Executive Director must also have a talent for attracting donors, a passion for investing in the potential of each student, and a gift for running an organization with grace and humor (preferably equal parts wry and wacky).

Job Responsibilities

Leadership
• Collaborate with the board and staff to promote, distinguish, and carry out the mission of BFI.
• Respect and nurture the expertise, creativity and commitment of BFI's wonderful staff; oversee the hiring, development, and productivity of new staff to guarantee their success at BFI.
• Guide and sustain the excellence of BFI programs, events, and activities with their unique and quirky character in tact.
• Make sure our programs meet the requirements of funding sources and achieve the intended outcomes for the kids involved.
• Motivate parents, partners, and potential funding sources to support and further our mission.
• Develop collaborative and mutually beneficial alliances with youth organizations, nonprofits, arts organizations, families, schools, foundations, corporations, local officials, and community partners.

Fiscal Management
• Develop, implement, and monitor BFI’s annual budget in collaboration
with financial staff and the BFI Board of Directors.
• Make sure that incoming donations, grants, foundation awards, and other funding meet the revenue goals of the annual budget, including adequate cash flow.
• Guide the development of annual financial and development plans to support each year's programmatic goals.
• Take the lead role in ongoing fundraising for the organization, including cultivating, engaging, and stewarding donors and other funding sources at all levels of giving.
• Oversee the planning and execution of outreach and fundraising events.

Operations
• Establish and ensure the necessary administrative and operational systems are in place to support organizational goals.
• Oversee BFI administrative functions, including finances, human resources, facilities, technology, communications, store operations, and program evaluation.
• Support staff responsible for the training and management of volunteers to sustain a vibrant volunteer pool, while ensuring that each volunteer is a good match for the program or project he or she supports.
• Make sure that evaluation and record-keeping processes accurately capture and report all BFI activities, frequency of participation in BFI youth programs, and notable trends, achievements, and problems or issues.
• Ensure that BFI technology and information systems are maintained, monitored, and updated as needed, and that funding is available for the technology required for efficient operations.

Outreach, Brand Development, and Marketing
• Work with staff to develop and implement an annual marketing communications plan to increase the visibility of our work and keep supporters well-informed.
• Oversee all public communications — including emails and letters, social media postings, the web site, newsletters, brochures, and public relations materials — to preserve the unconventional spirit, voice, and messages of BFI. (As a foundation director once said, “Your newsletter is the only one I read start to finish every month.”)

Board Relations
• Report to the board, attend each meeting, and keep the board thoroughly informed of BFI's progress and any obstacles to success.
• Personally engage each board member in BFI's work to build a lasting commitment; enlist his or her support whenever needed to help achieve immediate and long-term goals.
• Collaborate with staff on routine presentations to the board that highlight what, how, and where programs are occurring, as well as their desired outcomes, problem areas, and notable achievements.
• Work with the board to develop a strategic plan, monitor its implementation, and measure progress on an annual basis.
• Help the board identify, recruit, and develop active board members who can support the work of BFI in multiple ways.
• Assign and oversee staff liaisons to board committees so committees have the information and support necessary to fulfill their objectives.

Experience and Qualifications
• Personality: Charismatic, open-minded, articulate, child-friendly, and in possession of an excellent sense of humor.
• Education: Bachelor's degree in education, arts, or other relevant specialty from an accredited college or university. Preferred: Masters degree in education, nonprofit management, or other relevant specialty.
• Nonprofit: Four to six years' experience managing nonprofit youth programs, staff, and operations, with notable experience in education and/or the arts.
• Leadership: Ability to guide, mentor, delegate, listen, problem-solve, and make timely and effective decisions.
• Financial: Experience creating and managing budgets, overseeing financial and fundraising staff, and working with staff and board to sustain financial health.
• Fundraising: Experience as a nonprofit development director and/or demonstrated ability to secure funding from corporations, foundations, and other sources, while inspiring individual donors to give.
• Network: Access to a strong and diverse network of connections throughout Seattle and the Northwest.
• Collaboration: Experience working with many different cultures and constituents, including donors, community organizations, parents, teachers, volunteers, and children.
• Communications and Public Speaking: Outstanding written, oral, and interpersonal communication skills; a public speaking style that can clearly convey the spirit and purpose of BFI while holding the audience's attention.

Compensation
Salary will be commensurate with the applicant’s experience and competitive with nonprofit executive director salaries in the Northwest. The job also includes a stipend for health care, flexible work hours, and a generous vacation policy.

Description

GALLERY: Located inside ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery, 4711 California Ave. SW, Seattle WA, our Gallery consists of 100 linear feet in a C-shaped configuration. Hours: Thurs. & Fri. 2-7:30PM, Sat 2-7:30PM.

SUBJECT MATTER: The title of ArtsWest’s 2018-2019 Season, Beyond Ideas, is taken from the poem ""A Great Wagon"" by the 13th century Sufi mystic Rumi. In it, he speaks of the existence of a field, a place of common ground beyond ideas of who's right and who's wrong, where talk is cheap and even the distinction between ""me and you"" ceases to make sense in the face of the fullness of the world. Today, we're rediscovering an ugly power and reward in talking at each other rather than to each other. With the advent of digital and social media, we can talk at each other with impunity, hiding behind the shield and the mask of the screen and the soundbite. This season asks: what does it feel like to actually hear and see each other? We are encouraging artists to submit work that speaks to the heroic effort for truthful human contact. We are able to accommodate all wall-mounted visual art, small space for ceramics, no video installations.

DELIVERY & PICK-UP: Artwork must be hand-delivered and picked up on a date and time that is coordinated with our Technical Director. There is very limited storage on site. Most installations occur on the weekend, Mondays or Tuesdays.

DEADLINE: AUGUST 22, 2018
Artists will be notified as soon as decisions are made.

How to Apply

Email the following (or mail equivalent):
1. Completed Information form to: laural@artswest.org
2. Attach up to 6 Hi Res JPEG files of artwork or please provide a link to your portfolio or website.
3. Email is preferred. If unable to email, mail the application including the completed information form with CD containing up to 6 JPEG images. Please note that CD will not be returned to you.
4. Agree to a non-refundable fee of $10 to help us offset our Gallery costs.

LENGTH OF EXHIBITS: Exhibits run concurrently with our theater production dates – ensuring that both our visual art and theater performances play to clean spaces and maximum audiences. The length of these exhibits vary between 4-5 weeks in length.

SIZE RESTRICTIONS: We do not restrict the size of the artwork as long as it can be safely displayed.



ART SALES: Contact information of interested buyers will be provided directly to artists to complete purchase transactions. No sales commission is charged and ArtsWest is not a 3rd party in the sales of art.

LIABILITY: Please be advised that every reasonable precaution will be taken during the receiving, installation, exhibition and return of your artwork but ArtsWest employees, volunteers and patrons do not assume responsibility for loss or damage that might be incurred during this process. All work needs to be of substantial enough nature to withstand these procedures. We encourage each artist to carry their own insurance and to be involved in installation/de-installation.

DEADLINE: AUGUST 22, 2018
Artists will be notified as soon as decisions are made.

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.

• Copyedit all external-facing communications.
• Execute a social media strategy with content crafted for each of our social media brands.

• Help ensure that SAL’s visual and tonal brand is upheld in all external-facing communications.
• Coordinate audience survey tactics, including the distribution and collection of surveys at events and online at the end of the season. Coordinate the entry and analysis of this data.

Community Engagement (20%)
• Represent the organization at the majority of SAL’s Public Programs, WITS, and fundraising events (approximately 35 events a year).

Evening hours required; typically, 1-2 times/week September – May. See lectures.org for full schedule of events.

• Work with marketing interns.
• Gather reporting data for the Board as requested and occasionally present as needed (typically one time a year).
• Greet and direct office visitors and delivery people and staff the office intercom.
• 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:
• Passion for SAL’s mission and a love of stories and storytelling.
