Investing in Artists grants program (California)

Please note VENUE CHANGE: The Dec. 3rd workshop will be held in the Council Chambers at City Hall at 200 E. Santa Clara Street in San Jose.

New Grant Opportunity for California Artists (all art forms)

In June of 2007, the Center for Cultural Innovation announced the "Investing in Artists" grants program for individual artists throughout California. This 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.

Guidelines and Application Forms for Round 2 will be available online at www.cciarts.org/funding starting November 16, 2007 and will be due January 11, 2008.


The San Jose Office of Cultural Affairs will host a workshop for artists interested in the CCI's Investing in Artists grants program on December 3rd. This workshop will provide a general orientation to the Investing in Artists grants program application and funding guidelines.

The session will include:
An overview of the application guidelines and criteria.
A review of the application process and timing.
Q & A

Date: December 3, 2007 (Monday)
