Grants and in-kind services to USA art collaboratives and artists for projects and professional development activities. The purpose of this grant program is to support original arts projects as well as the training and support of artists. Eligible artists may be in a wide variety of art disciplines.
Creative Capital takes chances on artists by supporting bold, challenging, and genre-stretching ideas. Creative Capital has developed a four-part approach that includes support for artists, their project, their community, and their audience. Through funding, professional development, individual meetings with close colleagues, and consistent engagement with staff, Creative Capital provides artists with the resources they will need at strategic moments in their process. These include: consultations with legal, financial, marketing, public relations, and web consultants; an orientation meeting, Artist Retreats and Regional Gatherings; ten meetings with a strategic planning coach; and much more.
Creative Capital funds artist projects in all disciplines. No matter what genre or discipline, the most competitive projects take risks and articulate an original vision. Art disciplines supported include: animation, architecture & design, artistic activism, augmented reality, bio art, comedy, craft, cultural organizing, dance, dance film, data visualization, digital media, documentary film, drawing and illustration, ecological art, experimental film, games, graphic novel, hardware, installation, internet art, literary fiction, literary nonfiction, multimedia, multimedia performance, music composition, music performance, musical theater, narrative film, opera, painting, performance art, photography, poetry, public art, puppetry, sculpture, social practice, software, sound art, theater, video art, and virtual reality.
