Looking for work? Funding? Check out Artist Trust.

These are lean times for the arts and artists, which makes us especially grateful for the folks at Artist Trust. Each month this Seattle-based not-for-profit organization sends out a newsletter that is chock full of the kind of information Washington artists need to work and thrive in any economy. If you are looking for art opportunities, we suggest you make a pot of coffee (because this could take awhile) and check out the extensive listings for exhibition calls, career development opportunities, residencies and funding that you’ll find inside the newsletter. Artist Trust states its mission as follows:

“Artist Trust is a not-for-profit organization whose sole mission is to support and encourage individual artists working in all disciplines in order to enrich community life throughout Washington State. To accomplish its mission, Artist Trust raises funds from an array of sources in order to:
•Give financial grants, through a peer review process, to individual artists working in the visual, performing, media, literary, and interdisciplinary arts;
•Serve as a professional information resource for artists and encourage artists to support each other; and,
•Provide recognition and support for the contributions artists make to the lives of people of Washington State and for the merit and integrity of artists’ work.”
