Call for Artists & Culture Bearers




18th Street Arts Center seeks 40 artists and culture bearers to develop impactful arts and culture projects that foster community wellbeing in regions throughout the state. That’s right, we’re going statewide.  If selected, you will receive free, professional coaching to compose your project proposal, along with a $1,000 stipend.

All 40 proposals will be reviewed by a statewide panel and a total of 18 will be chosen to be fully realized and funded. In addition to project funding, each of the final 18 artists will receive a year-long salary of $65,000, free health insurance and even have the option to join our SIMPLE IRA plan with employer match.

If you are an artist or culture bearer already working to strengthen community wellbeing in California, or if you would like to become an artist doing this kind of work, we strongly encourage you to pitch your idea.
