Conductive Garboil Grant Accepting Applications

The Conductive Gargoil Grant is an annual award of $3,000 for Seattle artists who have a connection to the Pioneer Square neighborhood.

Artist awardees will have demonstrated a profound ability to challenge the limits of conductive creative discourse and its effects on our society, pushing the creative act beyond the accepted limits, definitions, or purposes of art while engaging audiences outside the aesthetic industrial complex.

The grant is administered by Artist Trust and 4Culture with the assistance of the late artist Su Job’s personal representative, Lynn Schirmer
