Dear Friend,

I’m writing to let you know that Creative Capital’s online application for grants in Emerging Fields, Literature and Performing Arts will open on February 1, 2012. We would greatly appreciate your help in spreading the word to your network by posting this opportunity in January or including it in your newsletter. I’m pasting a short blurb below-please let me know if we can provide you with any additional information. Thank you for helping us expand our grant outreach!

Save the Date! On February 1, 2012, Creative Capital will begin accepting online Letters of Inquiry for grants in Emerging Fields, Literature and Performing Arts. The Inquiry Form will be open until March 1. Visit to read the grant guidelines and learn more about the application process, or attend an in-person or online  information session.

Creative Capital provides integrated financial and advisory support to artists pursuing innovative and adventurous projects. Acting as a catalyst for the development of exceptional and imaginative ideas, we support artists whose work is provocative, timely and relevant; who are deeply engaged with their art forms and demonstrate a rigorous commitment to their craft, yet are also boldly original and push the boundaries of their genre; who create work that carries the potential to reshape the cultural landscape. Selected grantees receive up to $50,000 in direct support and a suite of services valued at more than $40,000.

To be eligible to apply, an artist must be:
* A U.S. citizen or permanent legal resident
* At least 25 years old
* A working artist with at least five years of professional experience
* Not a full-time student
