Working artists: the moment is now!
Creative Capital is now accepting applicants for their very awesome awards for visual and moving image artists.
If you’re an artists or you know an artist or you have ever read a book about an artist, you might know that finding individual grants, especially if your work falls outside the academic / institution-based art world, is nearly impossible.
The way this game is usually played, artists are subjected to lengthy and time-consuming and wildly competitive processes in which they have to contort themselves and their work and their personal statement into complex pretzel shapes and then hold those poses for nearly a year. And then if they are very lucky and have tremendous stamina, they might get $500 or $1,000 out of it.
Creative Capital focuses on the capacity and longevity of artists and their grants are a little bigger – they start at $10K and then go as high as $50K, plus other stuff like PR professional development and mentoring and whatnot.
