Grants for Artist Projects (GAP) Awards are project-based grants of $1,500 open to Washington State artists of any discipline. GAP Awards provide support for artist projects, including the development, completion, or presentation of new work. Funding may be used for artist fees, materials, equipment, space rental, travel for research, documentation, professional development opportunities, marketing & promotion, and many other needs related to your project.

Projects must take place October 2019 – October 2020. In 2019, Artist Trust will award 61 GAP Awards. In addition to funding, up to 4 media or performance artists will be awarded an evening to show their work at The Neptune Theatre in Seattle, WA as part of the Seattle Theatre Group Nights at the Neptune summer series.
