The Creative Capital Award is designed to assist artists who are working at the vanguard of their fields, or who have ideas to propel their artistic practices forward. Artists need partners to make ambitious work, and Creative Capital set out to be just that. The application is a way to help us determine which artists are ready to take the journey.

The Creative Capital Award application is a highly competitive process, but we have built value into it to make the time the artist spends on the application worthwhile. The application questions are designed to provoke meaningful reflection about a project, why it needs to be made, and for whom.

Over the years, we have heard feedback that regardless of the outcome, artists have used these questions as launch pads to think about the bigger picture, and more critically about their projects and their practices.

Detailed application instructions can be found here. Applications open in February.
