Funding up to $10,000 is available in 2009 for Seattle-based artists working in the performing arts, including theater, dance and music. The Office's CityArtists program provides support to individual artists to conceive, develop and present new, in-progress or finished original works. All projects must include a public presentation.

A link to the new online application, guidelines and workshop information is available on our Web site. Application deadline is Tuesday, Feb. 17.

A free information session will be held 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., Tuesday, Jan. 13, at the Queen Anne Branch of The Seattle Public Library, 400 W. Garfield St. A series of workshops offering online application assistance and application draft review begin Jan. 15. See the Web site for the complete schedule. The workshops are free, but reservations are required.
