How art gets generated.
City-funded programme aims to distribute $250,000 to institutions for money-making positions. Seattle has launched a new programme, Arts Mean Business, which aims to distribute $250,000 to jobs that keep Seattle’s arts and cultural organisations financially afloat.
Non-profit institutions can apply to the city’s Office of Arts & Cultural Affairsuntil 10 September for up to $25,000 in funds for jobs that have a “strategic importance” in generating revenue for their organisation.
A spokeswoman for the programme says that funds will likely go to administrative jobs in, for example, museum workshops or education curriculum. To qualify, an arts institution must be based in Seattle and have been in operation for at least three years.
