The Arts and Culture Neighborhood Recovery Program is a City of Seattle Office of Arts & Culture (ARTS)-funded program to provide grants for arts and cultural events/activations in neighborhoods through community-based Lead Organizations. There are 14 Lead Organizations focused on neighborhoods or communities throughout Seattle.
Cultural events, experiences, and spaces provide the reason for people to gather, confer identify, and build community which are ever more critically important during the current COVID pandemic and recovery process. This program seeks to support recovery efforts through collaboration, equity, resiliency and safety in alignment with the City of Seattle’s vision of One Seattle.
Africatown Community Land Trust, as the Lead Organization for Central District of Seattle, is sub-contracting to neighborhood-based organizations and small businesses to carry out inclusive and creative arts and culture endeavors that further the city’s pandemic recovery process. Applicants must conduct events/activations within this neighborhood or community.
