Description

4Culture and King County’s Wastewater Treatment Division (WTD) will commission two artists or artist-led teams to create intrigue and stimulate curiosity, raise awareness, and foster an emotional connection to the largely invisible Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO) system.

This exciting opportunity is connected to a new project site, the West Duwamish Wet Weather Storage Facility located in West Seattle. The artists selected for this project will have the opportunity to create meaningful artwork that engages issues of social, economic, and environmental relevance. We encourage collaboration with communities in the area throughout the project duration. Over the course of the project, the selected artist will be in close dialogue with 4Culture and the WTD staff.

Considering the West Duwamish site, the selected artists will be asked to consider the following topic and opportunity as outlined in the CSO Art Master Plan (more information below):

Topic, The End of the Line – The end of the line is where the built system meets the natural one at our regional bodies of water. This topic considers our relationship and connection to the system & where it connects to these bodies of water. How do we relate to these bodies of water? How can this topic connect us directly to these waters, like built tributaries to a river?

Project Duration, Short-Term – The artistic outcome may include a performance, publication, film or video, event, installation, as well as a temporary intervention or artist-initiated action. The outcome will likely happen in the surrounding communities and in connection with community partners.

ELGIBILITY
Open to artists residing in King County, WA. Artists in a range of disciplines may apply, including performing, literary, visual, time-based media, and social practice. Up to two artists will be commissioned. The artistic outcome may include performances, publications, films or videos, events, installations, as well as temporary interventions or artist-initiated actions.

BUDGET
$40,000 each ($8,000 fee, up to $32,000 for implementation). Budgets are inclusive of artist fee, and implementation. Washington State Sales/Use Tax may apply depending on the artist work.

How to Apply

Submission of an online application is required for this opportunity.

About THE NEA BIG READ and Ross Gay’s Catalog of Unabashed Gratitude

From NEA
The National Endowment for the Arts Big Read—a partnership with Arts Midwest—broadens our understanding of our world, our neighbors, and ourselves through the power of a shared reading experience. Showcasing a diverse range of themes, voices, and perspectives, the NEA Big Read aims to inspire meaningful conversations, artistic responses, and new discoveries and connections in each community.

Catalog of Unabashed Gratitude is a poetry collection by Indiana poet Ross Gay that celebrates life and goodness and that which nourishes us, fleetingly and forever, through love and loss, from everyday living and gardening and noticing what we often take for granted.
https://www.arts.gov/initiatives/nea-big-read/catalog-unabashed-gratitude

About the map

The artist or artist team will illustrate a walking map of sites pre-identified by a writer and a naturalist in preparation for two public workshops on April 29 and May 6, to be reproduced on a tri-fold brochure. Prompts will be provided to the artist mid-February for art to be completed by mid-March. Participation in workshops is encouraged but not required.

Title: Teaching Artist
Status: Part time, variable
Compensation: $65/hr for actual teaching hours
$40/hr meetings and trainings

Reports to: Education Manager
Overview
Youth in Focus’ mission is to prepare the next generation of creative thinkers to meet the
emerging needs of a global society, by amplifying teen voice through photography and arts
education.
We believe all youth should have equitable access to quality arts education. We provide
after-school, summer, and partner programs for teens aged 13-19 furthest from education
justice defined as youth of color, youth facing poverty/housing insecurity, those for whom
English is not their first language, and LGBTQ+ youth. We focus on Social & Emotional
Learning, 21st century skills, and technical photography and digital media skills, to ensure
students have the tools and confidence they need to succeed in education, life, and career. We offer pay-what-you-can tuition and free bus passes to make our programs accessible to all.
At Youth in Focus we value art as a powerful medium of change to create a healthy, vibrant,
more equitable and just society for all. Through this work, we aim to confront and dismantle
systemic oppression in all of its forms.

As we look to our future, Youth in Focus is committed to serving even more students furthest from education justice and continuing our work to become an anti-racist organization. Our supportive and inclusive community provides a sense of belonging and safety for youth, fostering positive connections between youth and caring adults.
We’re looking to add someone to the team who is excited to be a part of our mission and
growth! We value talents as much as skills, lived experience as much as education, and if you see yourself in this role given our preferred qualifications, we strongly encourage you to apply.

everyone feels valued and has a sense of belonging. Reinforce and model positive
relationships with caring adult teachers and mentors.
2. Equitable Access to Arts Education: Forge pathways and eliminate opportunity gaps
for those students furthest from educational justice.
3. 21st Century Skills: Teach creativity, collaboration, communication, critical thinking,
perseverance, and growth mindset so youth are prepared to succeed and thrive in
education, life, and / or career. Ensure students can name the skills they have
developed and readily understand how to transfer them to other areas of their life.
4. Planning and Leadership: Involve youth voice in planning, co-creating, and facilitating
activities.
5. Empathy and Tolerance: Through art and photography, inclusive dialogue, and
exposure to others from diverse backgrounds, cultivate empathy and tolerance
amongst youth participants to foster a healthy, vibrant, and more equitable society.

● Weekly In-Person Partner programs, 1-2 hours per week (1-2 hours session), dates
and times variable
● Bi-weekly after school programs, 5 hours per week (2.5 hours/session; M/W or T/TH
4:30-7:00pm)

TAs are paid the teacher rate ($65/hr) for actual teaching hours (we do not pay additional hours for preparation and planning, as that has been factored into the teaching rate). We also pay the meeting rate ($40/hr) for mandatory training sessions and approved meetings. In addition, TAs are reimbursed mileage for off-site programs and meetings if over 5 miles one-way. TAs are not reimbursed for mileage or travel time to the Youth in Focus office.
