4Culture Needs Your Help

4Culture is the arts, culture, and historic preservation arm of King County. It gives grants, it features new local artists in its Pioneer Square gallery every month (the newest lineup
here), it commissions public projects, and generally pumps energy in the ecosystem of Washington art and culture.

So don't let it get slashed. If the bill currently in front of the state legislature doesn't pass by March 11, then major cuts will start happening in January, and 4Culture will have no sustainable funding source into the future.

Here's what you can do—stop by the laptop rally in Pioneer Square during this Thursday's Artwalk, or just write a quick note from this template on your own.

And attention artists: Here's the funding applications calendar. Several deadlines are upcoming!

I went down to Oly and testified, reading from notes hastily written on the back of an envelope. 4culture has been sustaining support for me, my performative aspect (music). It really is a cliff, funding-wise, that the State is driving 4culture off.
