Center for Cultural Innovation, Call for California Applicants: Investing in Artists Grants Program, Performing Arts and Media Arts
Deadline: January 11th, 2013 by 6pm PST
Artistic creation requires more than just talent – it requires an initial investment of time and money as well. For this reason, the need for grant support has become a critical part of the creative process for many working artists today. The Investing in Artists grants program is designed to address this need by providing working artists in California with the financial resources and creative support systems they need to thrive.
Investing in Artists provides grants to individual artists in two funding categories:
- Grants for Artistic Equipment and Tools (up to $6,000), and
- Grants for Artistic Innovation (up to $10,000).
Applications are accepted on a deadline basis through our online grant submission process only. Deadlines rotate by disciplines.
The Investing in Artists grants program is designed to support diverse working artists in California in the performing, visual, literary, media, design and cross-disciplinary fields. As such, applicants representing a wide range of artistic practices, geographic regions and cultural expressions are encouraged to apply.
For the purposes of this program, eligible “working artists” are defined as adults who have received training in an artistic discipline or tradition, spend ten or more hours a week on their artwork, self define as professional artists, and attempt to derive income from work in which they use their expert artistic practices and skills.
