Creative Capital seeks to support the development of exceptionally bold and innovative work. The selection process is extremely competitive. Applicants are required to provide descriptions for their project, six works samples, and a preliminary budget, and answer questions about their work, practice, and intended audience and impact of the proposed project.

After the open application period closes at the end of February 2020, we will invite reviewers from all over the country to look at the applications we received. These outside reviewers evaluate projects based on the originality of the proposed idea, the artist’s capacity to make the work, the timeliness of the project, and the artist’s readiness to make use of Creative Capital’s career development services.
