Seeking Early Career Artist for Artist Residency

Uptown Arts & Culture Coalition
Deadline: 4/30/2024

This call is open to Western Washington residents who are within the first 4 years of their career as an artist and not currently a full time student. The artist must be able to attend meetings in the Uptown neighborhood (formerly known as Lower Queen Anne) on a monthly basis. People who are members of historically disenfranchised racial, ethnic, cultural, and other identity groups are especially encouraged to apply.
The Uptown Arts & Culture Coalition (UACC) seeks to support the next generation of arts leaders by providing an environment for an early career artist to experience board leadership, lead a public art project, and facilitate community engagement. The Artist in Residency (AR) will be an active member of the UACC board including voting power, participating in committee service, and connecting to the local artists & arts organizations. They will be assigned a board member to help them through the process of working with a board, community and the assigned project. Lastly, each AR is assigned a public art project where they will get the opportunity to work with the local community and artists in the design process.
