Description

Learn how artists can apply for the Creative Capital Award valued at $100,000, including $50,000 in project funding, and an additional $50,000 in career development services—all dedicated to supporting artists complete their innovative project ideas. The application, opening February 2020, is free and open to artists working in all disciplines across the country.

Creative Capital staff will present an overview of the organization and answer questions about the application process, the type of work they support, and how to apply. The session is free and open to the public—artists in all disciplines are encouraged to attend. For this session, we will be joined by Creative Capital Awardee Jina Valentine.
