2020 Arc Artist Fellowship / Funding
November 26, 2019
Organization Name: 4Culture
Organization Location: Seattle, WA
The Arc Artist Fellowship provides unrestricted $12,000 awards for King County artists, as well as promotional support through the 4Culture website. Each year, current Fellows will help shape the next funding cycle. Applicants must be artists residing in King County. The Arc Artist Fellowship has an additional eligibility requirement that changes annually. This year, eligible applicants are artists over 40 years of age* who identify transsexual, transgender, genderqueer, Two-Spirit people, and anyone whose gender identity or gender expression is nonconforming.
2020 Fellows will assist in determining the Arc Eligibility Requirement of the next year’s Fellowship.
Applicants must be 40 years of age or older on or before November 26, 2019
Because the original deadline of Wednesday, November 20, 2019 landed on Transgender Day of Remembrance, we will instead stand in solidarity with all those whose gender identity or gender expression is nonconforming, to honor those who have been impacted by violent hate crimes.
The Arc Artist Fellowship reflects 4Culture’s values by connecting with community and being responsive. Although our application deadline is established far in advance of our meetings with Fellows who shape our programming, we prioritize people over policies.
