The Seattle Office of Arts and Cultural Affairs announced funding awards totaling $46,800 to 39 neighborhood arts festivals and events yesterday through the Neighborhood and Community Arts (NCA) program.
Each organization received a $1,200 award. Two Beacon Hill-related events received grants: Cinco de Mayo, a Fifth of May celebration with music and dance presented by El Centro de la Raza, and the NEPO 5k (will it be a run this year instead of a walk-don’t-run?), in which eighty local artists will present site-specific installations and performances along of Seattle streets, presented by NEPO House.
Other nearby events include Columbia City’s Beatwalk; Celebrate Little Saigon, a Vietnamese cultural festival and night market; Word Expressed, readings by Filipino artists and writers; Honk! Fest West, a roving marching band festival; and the Georgetown Carnival.
