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, socioeconomics, home language, and disabilities. As with all of the Office of Arts & Culture’s Creative Youth Programs, Youth Arts Grant prioritizes programs serving young people within these demographics.
- Recipients will receive a total of $6,000 to support project expenses.
- Recipients will only receive funding once the program has started. Most awardees submit one invoice halfway through the program for $3,000 and again at the end of the program for the remaining $3,000 along with their final evaluation of the program.
- Once an invoice is submitted, recipients will receive the funds in 6-8 weeks.
- Individual teaching artists, art and cultural organizations, youth-service agencies, and degree-granting institutions are eligible to apply.
- Projects must take place between September 2021 – August 2022 must be available for Middle and High School people within Seattle.
