Grants available for local arts programs

The city’s Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs’ Neighborhood & Community Arts program is accepting applications for community cultural events in 2010. The application deadline is Oct. 27.
Funded organizations will each receive $1,200 to support project expenses such as artist fees, marketing and promotional fees, an venue and equipment rentals.

The funding program helps Seattle’s neighborhood art councils and community-based groups produce festivals and events that enhance the visibility of neighborhoods, promote cultural participation, celebrate diversity and build community through arts and culture.

Neighborhood arts councils and community-based groups that have been in existence for at least one year may seek annual support for a recurring festival or event that has a significant arts and cultural component, is open to the public and takes place in Seattle. Applicants are not required to have 501(c) (3) tax-exempt status.
