From the Philantropy News Digest, a service of The Foundation Center: Artists across the US will have the chance to promote their works-in-progress and works-to-be when the nonprofit arts organization Creative Capital accepts proposals for its 2007 grants cycle supporting projects in the visual arts and film/video.
To apply, artists must first submit an inquire form, which will be available FEBRUARY 5TH on the foundation’s website. Mark that date on your calendar/to-do list! The deadline for completed forms is MARCH 5th; those invited to submit a formal application with work samples will be notified in June 2007.
In the coming weeks, Creative Capital will be hosting public information sessions for those considering applying; dates are 1/9 at the Bronx Museum of art, 1/12 at the Maryland Art Place, 1/16 at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Denver, and 2/5 at the Art Institute of Chicago.
For the first time, Creative Capital has appointed two outside teams of arts professionals to assist with the selection process, which could lead to as many as forty grants. For a complete list of grantees, profiles of funded projects and up to date grant cycle information can be found online at the foundation’s website; consider signing up for their email list.
