Event Information

ACES is a two-day, POC-led, community-curated program with performances, exhibits, presentations, workshops, listening opportunities, and open forums. Our vision is to establish a space for us to celebrate and center ourselves. We are coming together with intentionality to value our work and to see each other as resources, while focusing on the challenges and and solutions we face as artists of color in the Pacific Northwest.

As part of ACES, the Office of Arts & Culture’s smART Ventures program is sponsoring mini-grants of up to $1000 to participating artists. smART ventures seeks to widen arts and culture participation, particularly for under-represented and marginalized communities, and close gaps in access to resources and opportunities for communities who have been under-resourced and under served as a result of (but not limited to these identities): race, gender, class, ability, sexual orientation, country of birth, age, and religion.

Once you have registered, you will receive a confirmation email with steps on how to take advantage of the smART Ventures grant.

ACES, presented by Shunpike, is made possible by funding from the National Endowment for the Arts and Seattle Department of Neighborhoods in partnership with Office of Arts & Culture Seattle,4Culture, Washington State Arts Commission, Seattle Center, Seattle Art Museum, Artist Trust, Arts Corps, The Vera Project, Consulado de México en Seattle, Seattle Children’s Museum, Pacific Science Center and SPoCS - Seattle People of Color Salon. Consulting guidance and oversight has been generously provided by NonWhiteWorks.
