Center for Cultural Innovation, Call for San Francisco Bay Area* Applicants: Investing in Artists Grants Program, Performing Arts and Media Arts
Deadline: June 28th, 2018, 12noon PST
The Investing in Artists grants program was established by the Center for Cultural Innovation (CCI) in 2007 to enhance the working lives and strengthen the creative support system for California artists working in all disciplines. Since that time, with the support of The James Irvine Foundation and The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, CCI has awarded $2.19 million to 304 diverse artists working in various disciplines across the state.
Through the continued support of The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, CCI is pleased to offer an additional three rounds of funding (2018-2020) for the Investing in Artists program for San Francisco Bay Area performing and media artists.
Who is eligible to apply:
Prospective applicants should read the guidelines carefully, as they differ from previous rounds, and make note of the following:
- Investing in Artists grants program will now only fund Performing Arts and Media Arts working artists in *11 Bay Area counties of Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Solano, Sonoma, Monterey and Santa Cruz;
- Applications will be accepted under the Artistic Innovation category for a maximum award of up to $8,000; and
- Artists who were previously funded in the Artistic Innovation category will be eligible to re-apply for a new grant after a three-year waiting period (i.e., if you received an Artistic Innovation grant in 2015, you will be eligible to re-apply for this grant beginning this year).
