Creative Capital – Request for LOIs

8 Jan


Type of Opportunity: Request for Letters of Inquiry

Deadline: February 1-28, 2018

Creative Capital takes chances on artists by supporting your bold, challenging, and genre-stretching ideas. Over the past 20 years, we have developed a four-part approach that includes support for you, your project, your community, and your audience. Through funding, professional development, individual meetings with close colleagues, and consistent engagement with our staff, we provide you with the resources you will need at strategic moments in your process. These include: consultations with legal, financial, marketing, public relations, and web consultants; an orientation meeting, Artist Retreats and Regional Gatherings; ten meetings with a strategic planning coach; and much more.

We make a commitment to work with you for the time you need to get your project done. Most of the projects we fund have a three-to-five-year timeline; even if yours is longer, we will stick with you every step of the way.
