Antarctic Artists and Writers Program

The purpose of the Antarctic Artists and Writers Program is to enable serious writings and works of art that exemplify the Antarctic heritage of humankind. In particular, the program seeks to increase public understanding of the Antarctic region, including the continent and the surrounding oceans, as well as the associated research and education endeavors. The Antarctic Artists and Writers Program provides opportunities for professional artists and writers to travel to Antarctica --- at research stations, field camps, and aboard ships --- to make the observations necessary to complete their proposed projects. While the majority of award recipients are established artists and writers, the program also seeks to support early career artists and writers in an effort to broaden participation. The National Science Foundation funds and manages the U.S. Antarctic Program, which is devoted mainly to scientific research and education in support of the national interest in the Antarctic. The program’s research and support infrastructure enables access to much of the Antarctic region for selected Antarctic Artists and Writers Program projects. It does not typically provide direct financial support to selected applicants. International Polar Year A concerted worldwide effort is underway to plan scientific and educational activities for the upcoming International Polar Year (IPY). Scheduled to officially begin in March 2007, IPY promises to advance our understanding of how the Earth's remote polar regions impact global climate systems, to bring about fundamental advances in many areas of science, and to fire the enthusiasm of young men and women for future careers in science and engineering. The Foundation has placed special emphasis on IPY in recent proposal solicitations and expects to support a wide array of IPY projects. This international event represents a significant opportunity for artists and writers to convey the importance of the polar regions to the world. The submission of IPY-related Antarctic Artists and Writers program proposals are strongly encouraged.

Individual artists funding

Individual artists and the creative process are the heart of an arts community. Every year, the CityArtist Projects program provides funding to develop and present original work by Seattle artists, with different disciplines in alternating years. Funds may support new works, works-in-progress, or finished works, and all projects must include a public presentation. Funding awards range up to $10,000. In the 2007 funding cycle, we awarded $200,000 in grants to 31 artists working in the performing arts. The funded projects will involve 445 artists in 147 events throughout the city. Twenty-two of the 31 artist projects funded are first-time recipients, representing 71 percent of the awards, which range from $1,500 to $10,000. Sixty-five percent of the applicants' requests were fully funded with an average award of $6,451. The program received a record 118 applicants, a 103-percent increase in applications from the previous 2005 funding cycle for performing disciplines.
