Funding available for wintertime events in Seattle parks

The next round of funding for events in Seattle parks is happening now, with up to $1000 available per applicant for wintertime park activities.

The funding is part of the City’s Arts in Parks program, aiming to encourage regular use of Seattle parks. Project proposals must have a significant arts component and engage underserved communities.

Who can apply (from Seattle Parks):

  • Individuals, artists, neighborhood arts councils and local community-based groups are eligible.
  • Organizations and individual artists representing underserved communities – especially communities of color, immigrant and refugee communities, low-income communities, and LGBTQ communities –  are encouraged to apply.
  • Those applying are NOT required to be a 501(c)(3) nonprofit NOR are they required to use a fiscal agent.

Proposals will be evaluated on the quality of the project, its community impact, and feasibility. The projects should have a significant arts and culture component, be free and open to the public, provide a platform for or engage under-represented artists and/or communities, and take place in a park within the city limits.

The events must happen by the end of the day on Sunday, Dec. 22 — awardees must submit their final event invoices to the City by Dec. 23. Applications must be in by Nov. 13.

If they would finally stop giving businesses tax breaks, they could fix the roads and not have to take funds from arts programs.

I’d like to see your proposal to “fix the damn roads and bridges” for $1000.

Also, how curmudgeony do you have to be to not want your society to have fun, community oriented events?

Parks? This is for another neighborhood that has parks. Probably wherever Jenny and those other people live.
