    Artist Boost Program

    Creative Events & Concerts



    Abbey Artist Boost Program Goals:

    • Amplify the voices and visions of under heard local artists
    • Support the local creative economy in King County
    • Help more artists connect with each other and with new audiences
    • Help audience members connect with music, arts, and each other to increase wellness
    • Improve access to beautiful historic spaces


    Limited grants of event space, production support and extra event/artist promotion available for limited dates each year.
    Potential for recording & video sessions may be available in connection with your event.
    Most public events will be ticketed, and artists will be paid out 80% or more of ticket revenue.
    Artists never have to pay to play at Abbey Arts venues.
    In some cases, grants will cover costs and artists will be paid a stipend if a free public event is required by the grant.


    More info:
    Abbey Arts is extending an invitation to local Artists of all types to submit their ideas for exciting new events!
    Artist curators would have the opportunity to present proposals for events that showcase profound works of art and/or music being made here in Seattle, to be held at one of Abbey Arts’ beautiful, historic venues.
    Depending on level of involvement, curators will be eligible for a stipend or percentage of ticket sales.
    The primary goal is to help bring in up & coming, potentially less heard and developing voices that deserve more support from venues & audiences, but to ensure there is an audience, applicants should start with a “headliner” and work from there.


    Apply now for limited dates at Ballard Homestead & Fremont Abbey.
    Other venues may be available for events that have a large draw / proven ticket sales history.


    Program criteria:

    – Artist groups helping or involving underserved communities
    – Simple events not involving too much planning or logistics


    Apply Now:

    Simply email us your proposal!  Include a brief creative narrative (1-2 paragraphs at most) and 3-5 bullet points of your main ideas, if you need specific dates, etc.

    Be sure to indicate you’re applying for the Artist Boost program in the subject line when you inquire to booking(at)

    We will do our best to review within 2 weeks but feel free to follow up.
