Creative Capital provides grants to artists to support the creation of groundbreaking new art via a democratic, national, open call process. Innovation is the primary selection criterion, with a focus on championing groundbreaking projects and ideas. While selecting projects that are interesting, genre-stretching, and adventurous, they welcome multidisciplinary projects as well as projects that push boundaries within a single genre. In their upcoming grant cycle, which features the theme “Wild Futures: Art Culture, Impact,” Creative Capital invites artists to propose experimental, risk-taking projects in the visual arts and film/moving image that push boundaries formally and thematically, and/or venture into wild, out-there, never-before-seen concepts and future universes real or imagined.
Ultimately, Creative Capital seeks proposals for groundbreaking new work—including, but not limited to, work that attends to the many relationships between social, economic, and environmental justice, and advances the global dialogue around critical issues impacting the sustainability of artists, our communities, our planet, and beyond. Letters of Intent are accepted from March 1 to March 31, 2023.
