Through an open application process, Creative Capital identifies and selects artists from all disciplines to receive the Creative Capital Award. We provide each project with up to $100,000 in total support: $50,000 in direct funding allocated at key intervals in project development, combined with $50,000 of deep mentorship and advisory services. Since 1999, we have committed over $48 million in project funding and advisory support to 596 projects representing 741 artists.
Creative Capital Award
We provide the tools and strategies needed to gain self-sufficiency as artists. This spirit of community building and resource sharing inspired us to create a full suite of workshops accessible to artists everywhere. Since 2003, we have worked with more than 20,000 artists who are enriching over 800 creative communities across the country.
Community & Connections
We organize gatherings around the country that include the Creative Capital Artist Retreat. These gatherings provide important networking and collaboration-building opportunities, as well as connections to local communities, cultural leaders, and supporters of the arts. From informal dinners to multi-day discussions and workshops, we believe in the power of uniting around creative ideas.
