New Fund: Seattle Launches New Deal-Style Jobs Program for Artists

From Hyperallergic: "In response to the COVID-19 pandemic’s effects on the arts and culture sectors, the Seattle Office of Arts and Culture (ARTS) will distribute $2 million to create jobs for unemployed and underemployed artists and cultural workers."

“'These programs will employ creative workers, demonstrate how they are embedded in the social-economic fabric, and reinforce the fact that Seattle is flourishing and meshing its creatives into its workforce, thereby into its social structures,' royal alley-barnes, acting director of ARTS, told Hyperallergic in a statement."
