Event Posters Wanted to Support Local Music / Calls & Submissions

October 12, 2021

Organization Name: Abbey Arts

Organization Location: Seattle, WA

Type: Calls & Submissions

Fee: Free


Welcome back to the wonderful world of live music!

Abbey Arts Presents (Fremont Abbey) is seeking 7 local artists to help boost the local scene by creating compelling poster/art designs aimed at encouraging audiences to support local music. Artists will be paid a stipend for their artwork.

Event posters and Support Local Music images are a key component in helping people return to and increase their support of our local artist and music community. Your art poster can spark interest and contribute to the visual connection to live music and how it helps us clear stress, connect with others and feel better.

We need your unique visuals to draw eyes (and hopefully ears!) to local bands and artists this season.

About us: Abbey Arts is a non-profit arts, music, and event center with programming in Fremont, South Park, Ballard, Capitol Hill, U District, Greenlake. Our mission is to curate welcoming arts & cultural experiences where people of all ages and incomes can explore creativity, enjoy beauty, grow empathy, and increase awareness. All Abbey Arts events adhere to public health guidelines.

You can find more information about our array of concerts & multi-arts events @ www.FremontAbbey.org

Guidelines: We are open to whatever wild ideas and unusual visuals you can dream up, but if you are looking for a little inspiration, here are some prompts:

~ How does music make you feel better?

~ A visual that speaks to why you love music and then tie that into local music and the current need

~ How do you visualize creativity, beauty, or empathy?

11×17 format but will be used for digital, Instagram, etc. as well

Award: If your concept idea is selected we will then work with you on the design.

Chosen artists will receive a stipend for their work ($100-200) depending on design complexity, be tagged on socials, and be able to see their work on display around Seattle and possibly in ads!
