An initiative of Seattle’s Northwest Film Forum (NWFF), Collective Power Fund is a part of the Regional Regranting Program by the Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, which consists of 30 satellite venues and partners across the country presenting hyper-local artist funding.
Collective Power Fund focuses primarily on supporting work that incites public dialogue, pushes boundaries, explores genre fluidity, speaks its truth through an authentic perspective, and is often non-traditional, anti-institutional, socially responsible, or disruptive of existing structures and conventions. It encourages a community-forward environment of resource-sharing, mutual support, and fellowship in the Pacific Northwest arts ecosystem.
Our Spring 2022 grants will distribute $68,000 in increments of $2,000 – $5,000 – $10,000. Individual artists, who live in King County, will be eligible to self-select into either the $2,000 or $5,000 tiers and the $10,000 tier will be exclusive to artist teams or artist-run collectives within the county. Unlike the Artist Development Grant in Spring 2021, the next round will be for artists of all levels, rather than those who are just emerging.
