Individual artists who reside in Washington State are encouraged to apply to the 2012 Grants for Artist Projects (GAP). Artist Trust’s GAP provides support for individual artist projects awarding up to $1,500 per project. GAPs support a spectrum of artist projects including (but not limited to) the development, completion or presentation of new work; publication; travel for artistic research or to present or complete work; documentation of work; and advanced workshops for professional development.
GAPs are open to artists working in all creative disciplines including visual, performing, literary, media, emerging and cross-disciplinary arts, and folk and traditional arts. Applicants must be 18 years of age or older by application deadline date; be a generative artist; and be a resident of Washington State at the time of application and when the award is granted. Applicants may NOT be a graduate or undergraduate matriculated student enrolled in any degree program by deadline date.
A peer review panel of artists and art professionals from across Washington State selects GAP recipients. The panel’s selections are based foremost on the artistic excellence of an artist’s work as represented in their application. Artists are encouraged to attend grant writing and professional development workshops and webinars offered by Artist Trust to artists around the state. Application guidelines and workshop information can be found at http://www.artisttrust.org. Continue reading
