CityArtist Projects provides project funding for the development and presentation of work by independent Seattle artists/curators. The 2017 cycle will accept proposals from artists/curators working in Literary (except Playwriting), Media/Film and Visual Arts. Awards may support new works, works in progress, remounted 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.

Eligibility: Seattle artists/curators creating work in Literary (except Playwriting), Media/Film and Visual Arts will be accepted.  Traditional/ethnic and multi-disciplinary projects are always welcome, so long as a primary art form is one of the eligible disciplines listed.
