Arts Mean Business: Music Video series release!

Spokane Arts partnered local musicians with local filmmakers to create original work in support of their favorite local businesses! Watch for each video in this series to be released here soon!

Spokane Arts is excited to be releasing a series of music videos, created by local filmmakers and local musicians in support of their favorite local businesses! This project was funded with Spokane County CARES Act dollars through a Greater Spokane Inc. grant and is part of a larger campaign in support of area artists and creatives.

Four teams were created for this round of music videos, and each team was tasked with creating an original song and video to support a local business of their choosing. Spokane Arts was excited to also invite two student videographers from Spokane Falls Community College to participate through paid internships, creating short “behind the scenes” videos for each music video. This year has brought incredible economic hardship to local businesses and creatives including filmmakers and musicians. This campaign was intended to bring immediate work to local creative teams and to provide much-needed support for local businesses.

Find all the films as they are released here on Spokane Art’s YouTube channel!
