Grants Opportunity for California Artists from The Center for Cultural Innovation CCI


The Center for Cultural Innovation (CCI) is pleased to announce that the Guidelines and Application Forms for Round II of the Investing in Artists grants program are now available for download at:
Applications for Round II must be received in CCI’s
San Francisco office on January 11, 2008.The Investing in Artists grants program is designed to enhance the working lives and creative environment for California artists by funding tools and market strategies that will allow them to create their best work more consistently, and distribute that work more broadly to new audiences. To support those aims, Investing in Artists provides grants in two categories: 1) Artistic Equipment & Tools; and 2) Presenting & Marketing Work.

Response to Round I of the Investing in Artists grants program was extremely encouraging, but we know that there are still many artists in California that we have yet to reach. Please help us in spreading the word about this unique funding opportunity by forwarding this email to artists in your networks. In addition, a representative from CCI will be traveling throughout the state to present an informational workshop on the Investing in Artists program.
