Application portals are OPEN!

Please apply to SAGA through the portal that best describes you or your group. Due to the coronavirus, SAGA is accepting Round 2 applications on a rolling basis until June 1. This will allow us to respond more quickly to the critical needs our arts community is experiencing with canceled programming and fundraisers.

Individual artists looking for support at this time should ALSO learn more about our “Spokane Artists & Creatives Fund.” These funds will be distributed directly to artists who are facing lost income due to canceled gigs, events, and shows, and other financial hardships due to Covid-19. Apply for that pool of funding through the simple form found at (Note: this is a SEPARATE program from SAGA and application to one program does not affect your eligibility to apply to the other.)
