Call for Artists - Sequim UnderStory

Sequim Understory Logo Final

The City Arts Advisory Commission (CAAC) is seeking proposals from artists that engage with the community as part of the Sequim Understory, a Creative Placemaking Initiative that re-envisions Sequim City planning. Practicing artists of any medium on the Olympic Peninsula, who have a background or a keen interest in community engagement, are encouraged to apply. 

The CAAC is looking for strong proposals that will engage with our community, illustrate, and answer the question: Who is Sequim to you? 

Artists are asked to create a community engagement plan that creatively addresses this inquiry and creates a final artwork in response. The artwork can be of any form, including without limitation a painting, song, poem, story, or sculpture, or a performance of theater or dance. Selected artists must complete the final Artwork by October 1, 2021 for presentation to the public in November 2021.  Depending on the medium of the artwork and pandemic conditions, CAAC staff will work with artists to find the best way to display their artwork. The two selected artists will each receive a $1,000.00 stipend for art expenses. 

To apply, artists will need to submit a proposal, work samples, and budget plan for art-related expenses. For more information and application guidelines please visit: https://www.sequimcityarts.com/call-for-artists

Deadline for submissions is Monday, March 15, 2021 at 8:00 p.m.  Only digital applications will be considered. To apply, go to: https://form.jotform.com/alagattuta/sequimunderstory-artist

All entries will be juried by the CAAC on March 26, 2021 and artists will be notified of their status by April 1, 2021. 

Like the understory of a forest, hidden by the canopy yet full of life, Sequim Understory aspires to tell the stories and hopes that sustain our Sequim community.
