Over the past several months, our team has worked with artists and partners statewide to re-envision GAP for the 2021 award cycle to be more responsive to artists and communities with the highest need for support. We are excited to announce Grants for Artists’ Progress, a $1,500 hybrid need-and-merit-based regional award providing unrestricted funding for Washington State artists of all disciplines who identify as Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC).
Funding will be evenly distributed across five Washington State regions: North Central, South Central, Puget Sound, East, and West, with $15,000 allocated to support artists in each. For more information see the Guidelines and FAQ. Applications open on August 2 with a deadline of Tuesday, September 7 at 11:59 p.m. PST.
2021 is a year of learning, development, and transformation. This program will help to shape future grantmaking at Artist Trust. Thank you for being on this journey with us!
2021 GAP is made possible in part thanks to support from WarnerMedia, funded by AT&T.
