Category 1: Application for Individuals.
The Spokane Arts Grant Awards, known as SAGA, enables a thriving arts economy.
• Grant funding financially supports arts and culture projects and programs, as well as individual artists, who meet the Spokane community’s needs
Selecting which grant round you apply for is very important. We generally allow a grant funding period of up to one year. For example, if you choose to apply to this grant application (Round 1) and are funded April 1, 2018, you must complete your grant report by April 1, 2019.
SAGA grants are non-renewable.
You must be offering projects, or be working as an artist in a way that impacts and benefits the Spokane region.
You will be required to submit a budget and a detailed narrative that explains how you intend to use the grant money to benefit Spokane, and why this grant money is important to your success.
Applications from individuals must be submitted by an individual working artist.
“Working artist” is defined as a person who has received training in an artistic discipline or tradition, and/or self-identifies as professional artist, meaning that they attempt to derive income from work in which they use their expert artistic practices and skills. While serious artistic activity performed as a hobby or as part of volunteer community service may be considered eligible, the most successful grant applicants will have demonstrated a history of artistic accomplishment and a sustained commitment to deepening and expanding their artistic work.
The applicant must maintain permanent residency in the Spokane region during the grant award period.
Only one application total may be submitted per individual during each funding round.
SAGA will not fund program fees for artist residencies outside of Spokane (cost of the residency, travel expenses, etc.) One exception will be residency fees related to the material cost or exhibition/performance expenses for projects/ performances that will take place in Spokane.
