Wednesday, April 14
11 a.m. – 12 p.m.


Arts & culture are powerful tools for engaging the community in collective change. They ignite civil discourse, inspire action, and help us imagine and advocate for a just world. Underlying many of the most pressing issues in our community are the effects of structural racism. From housing and homelessness to education and health, people of color in our community experience disproportionately negative outcomes across a wide range of areas. Launched in 2018, the Creative Equity Fund supports arts- and culture-based strategies that address the structural racism impacting our communities and build racial justice.

The Creative Equity Fund aims to direct a total of $600,000 over the next two years to support both arts and cultural groups and other community-based organizations located within King County which use arts- and culture-based strategies to work toward racial justice. This upcoming round of funding will focus exclusively on supporting organizations most directly impacted by structural racism and colonization, those that are led by Black and Indigenous people.
