Collective Power Fund – Now Accepting Applications

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 35 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.

2024 Collective Power Fund grants are project-based and distribute $60,000 in funding as follows:

  • (1) $10,000 (Artist Team or Arts Collective)
  • (8) $5,000 (New Work/Projects)
  • (5) $2,000 (Research + Development)

Individual artists, who live in King County, are able to apply for the $2,000 or $5,000 tiers. The $10,000 tier is exclusive to artist teams or artist-run collectives within unincorporated and incorporated King County.

New Work/Project Grants ($5,000)
​​Support the creation and presentation of visionary, artist-driven new work/projects.

Research & Development Grants ($2,000)

Research Grants funds can be used to compensate for intellectual labor and idea development, to pay other artists and thinkers for their time and contributions, and/or for costs associated with gaining access to specific resources.

Artist Team or Artist Collective Grant ($10,000)

Support the creation and presentation of visionary, new work/project created by an artist team or arts collective.
