Creative Capital Awards

Wild Futures: Art, Culture, Impact

Creative Capital Awards

In celebration of their upcoming 25th Anniversary, Creative Capital is pleased to announce “Wild Futures: Art, Culture, Impact”— the one-time theme for the next grant cycle in 2023/2024. Over a two-year period, the Creative Capital Awards will provide up to $5 million in grants to help realize 100 artists’ projects with awards of up to $50,000 with additional advisory services per project.

Creative Capital invites artists to propose experimental, risk-taking projects which push boundaries formally and thematically, and/or venture into wild, out-there, never-before-seen concepts and future universes real or imagined. Ultimately, they seek 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.
