Latino artists invited to learn about arts funding

Come to a gathering and find information, resources and contacts to help artists better access funding opportunities on Monday, July 15 at Langston Hughes Performing Arts Institute (located at 104 17th Ave. S., Seattle) from 6:30 to 8:30 pm. Learn more about funding programs and processes, share best-practices through peer learning and build connections between artists and funders throughout Seattle, King County and Washington State. Interpreters and translated materials will be available along with light refreshments. The program is a collaborative effort between Artist Trust, Seattle Office of Arts & Culture and 4Culture.

The session will feature a Latino/a artist panel who will share their experiences and tips for successful projects. The panel will be facilitated by writer Felicia Gonzalez and includes artists Juan Alonso, Alma Garcia, Jovino Neto Santos, Monica Rojas Stewart, Michelle de la Vega and Rodrigo Valenzuela.

There is a suggested donation of $5. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. Registration is online, but not required. All are welcome. For more information, contact Irene Gómez at 206 684.7310.
