ARTISTS UP Grant LAB awards support vision and inspiration for 18 Washington artists

Eighteen artists from Washington State were awarded funds from Grant LAB, an experimental program designed to remove barriers for historically under-represented artists and increase racial equity in grant making programs. Inspired by qualitative research with artists, Grant LAB aligned the grant selection process with how and why artists work and create. Each artist will receive $3,000 to support their artistic vision. Learn more.

  1. Thank you for your efforts to support these artists. I am certain that the reviewers had some tough choices to make and that there were likely a large number of additional applicants. Please know that by saying no to some and yes to others, you give hope to many. Thanks reviewers, program managers, elected representatives, and tax payers. These grants are a worthy investment in our collective future as well an acknowledgement of how we can improve our society.
