GAP Season is Officially Open!

Emily Dennis

Grants for Artist Projects is in its 29th year as Artist Trust’s flagship program and we’re as excited about it now as we were in 1988! (Maybe with slightly less neon.) GAP awards are $1,500 project-based grants, useable for supplies, travel, studio time – anything that supports your new or in-process project. There is also one one-month residency at Centrum in Port Townsend, along with a $500 stipend, up for grabs.

The application deadline is May 15th, but if you can get us your application by the early submission deadline of April 17th, we’ll provide you with feedback so you can edit, perfect, and resubmit by May.

Here at Artist Trust, we are committed to transparency, and to racial and geographic equity. With that in mind, we’re looking forward to traveling around the state with our How to Apply to an Artist Grant workshop. In these sessions, Artist Trust staff will explain the application process, provide one-on-one feedback, and answer questions. We also have a webinar and Office Hours at our home on 12th Ave in Seattle. Read on to see when we’ll be near you and of course, don’t hesitate to contact us with questions.
