Open4Culture Grant

Posted on: July 5, 2023
Organizer: 4Culture
Event Date or Due Date: Ongoing

This grant awards up to $2,500 for Arts projects in Seattle’s Communities of Opportunity or King County, and Heritage or Preservation projects anywhere in the county.

This grant offers support for projects in our three core disciplines: Arts, Heritage, and Preservation. Projects can take place in-person, online, or hybrid.

  • Arts: Your project creates art of any discipline that offers some community access to the art or the artmaking process, such as readings, screenings, exhibitions, performances, workshops, discussions, festivals, activities, and more.
  • Heritage: Heritage is defined as “the exchange of knowledge and experiences shaped by the past.” Your project focuses on heritage and historical themes in King County through identification, documentation, exhibition, or interpretation. Heritage can include people, memories, places, communities, and events.
  • Preservation: Your project must contribute to the preservation of King County’s historic buildings, sites, neighborhoods, or landscapes through documentation, identification, research, analysis, educational programming, or advocacy.

Applications are due at least 2 months before the date of the project or event. For example, if your event is March 1, you must submit by January 1.

Please contact us if you are interested in applying. Our staff will help you determine if your project is a good fit for Open 4Culture and then begin the application. We will answer any of your questions and support you through the entire process, from beginning to end!
