Creative Work Fund: Program for Collaborations in Media & Performing Arts

Bay Area, CA | Apply by December 1st, 2017

In August 2018, the Creative Work Fund will award approximately $600,000 in grants to nonprofit organizations and collaborating media or performing artists. Grants will range from $10,000 to $40,000.

WHO IS INVITED TO APPLY?

  • Media Artists who create narrative, documentary, animated, or experimental time-based works using audio, digital, film, and video media. Computer arts also are included in this category. (Please note that this category does not include journalism, and the Fund considers still photography in its visual arts category.) 
     
  • Performing Artists who create or execute work in dance, opera, performance art, theater, and vocal and instrumental music. (Spoken word artists should apply as literary artists in a future year.) 
     
  • Collaborating with nonprofit organizations of all kinds. The Fund encourages the artists and organizations to “come together” for the sake of this collaboration: Artists should not submit a request to collaborate with an organization if they are members of its paid staff or serve on its board of directors.
