About the Artist

Shaun Scott (Seattle) received a BA in History at University of Washington. He received a grant from Seattle’s Office of Arts & Cultural and was recognized in City Arts Magazine on their “Future List” of artists who would “shape the future of arts and culture in the region.” Shaun was a Stranger Genius Award finalist in 2010 and 2012 in the category of film and his reflections on race, cinema, sports, and popular culture have since appeared in “Seattle Weekly”, “The Monarch Review”, “City Arts Magazine”, and the Australian film journal “Senses of Cinema”.

Shaun received 2015 GAP funding for promoting "Millennials and the Moments that Made Us: A Cultural History of the U.S. Since 1984" a combined cultural history and personal memoir that relays the rise of a generation that’s sui generis in American History. GAP funding will support his ability to fully devote his attention to the manuscript’s nascent research phase in late 2015, and would defray the cost of editorial support throughout the project.
