“I’m a historian. I rely on my source materials to inspire reflection, and to relate to readers. These materials can be costly. Earning a grant from Artist Trust has helped make it so that I don’t have to worry about securing them.”

—Filmmaker and Writer Shaun Scott, 2015 Grants for Artist Projects recipient

Whether presenting art in a gallery, reading a poem at a literary event, or performing live in front of an audience, it takes courage to put your work out there. Through our professional development programs and workshops, grants, and resources, Artist Trust helps artists of all disciplines throughout Washington State bring their creations to life, and into the world. 

Support Artist Trust by donating through GiveBIG and your gift will be stretched by Seattle Foundation AND matched dollar for dollar to $5500 by donors from our generous Board of Trustees.

Funds raised through GiveBIG will underwrite Artist Trust’s current round of Grants for Artist Projects (GAP). These 61 awards of $1500 each provide critical support for emerging and established artists, like Shaun, working in any discipline.  Each $1500 raised through GiveBIG allows us to provide one GAP.
