The Creative Capital Artist Retreat is a multi day convening that brings together Creative Capital Awardees with some of the industry’s leading professionals (producers, presenters, curators of all kinds, etc.), invited guests, and other supporters for the exchange of ideas and expertise. The event is centered around awardees sharing their work with a community of engaged individuals and establishing relationships with contacts who might be able to help to bring the project to life or serve as resources in other ways.

Each artist or collaborative will give a presentation of up to five minutes, centering on their Creative Capital Project, and the resources and connections that will help them to realize their vision. Live captions and ASL interpretation will be provided.
