Creative Capital Grant - Wild Futures



Creative Capital provides grants to support the creation of groundbreaking art by innovative and adventurous artists across the country. Our transformative giving approach is built on the principle that artists need funding as well as networks and professional services in order to build long-term sustainable projects and careers. Awardees have access to direct project funding of varying amounts up to $50,000, artist services, and a community of fellow awardees and other professionals who may provide additional support for the project. We encourage a spirit of mutual generosity among our awardees and seek to foster exchange through our retreats, workshops, and online, regional, national, and international gatherings. Over the course of a funded project, we partner with each artist to help define critical moments of development and determine how to best meet their goals.

  • September 2022: Notification of advancement to Round III
  • January 2023: Public announcement of 2023 Creative Capital Awards


The selection process for the Creative Capital Award includes three rounds of review with external expert reviewers. As a result, multiple arts professionals from across the country will have seen each individual application by the final round, exposing the projects to new audiences.

  • In Round I, we will accept Letters of Inquiry (LOI) through our free and open-call
    application, available through our application portal.
  • In Round II, artists selected to advance will be required to submit a project itemized
    budget, a project timeline, and work samples.
  • In Round III, artists selected to advance to the Final Panel Review will be required to
    submit their proof of eligibility, and can submit optional project updates.
    Throughout this process we make a concerted effort to select a roster of projects that
    reflects work from across the nation and diversity in all its forms: art forms and creative processes, gender, ability, race/ethnicity, geographic distribution, age, and experience.
    What results is an incredible group of innovative projects by artists in varying stages of their
    career—from emerging artists who have yet to show their work in major public forums, to
    renowned artists ready to launch an exciting new idea in their body of work.
