Artist Calls and Opportunities: Creative Capacity Fund’s NextGen Arts Professional Development Grants (Monthly – Deadline 15th)

Center for Cultural Innovation, Irvine Foundation, William and Flora Hewlett Foundation

Deadline: 12-15-2014

The NextGen Arts Professional Development Grant Program provides professional development funding to emerging arts leaders in California to enroll in workshops, attend conferences, to work with consultants or coaches, or pursue alternative career enrichment activities in order to enhance the administrative skills and program experience needed to lead the nonprofit arts sector of tomorrow.

Individual nonprofit arts administrators between the ages of 18-35 may be eligible to receive up to $1,000 for activities that support career enrichment for California’s emerging arts leaders

Eligible applicants must:
• Be between the ages of 18-35;
• Have worked for less than 10 consecutive years in the arts field. Please note that by
consecutive years, we mean less than 10 years back to back. Working refers to being paid to
work in the arts field and/or serving as a board member of an arts organization. Working does
not include volunteer work;
• Currently work with a nonprofit organization in California as an administrator, artist, or board
member. Please note that artists who work with an organization must demonstrate a
consistent, long-term working relationship with the organization through which they are
applying since that organization will be responsible for processing the applicant’s grant
payment if awarded;
• Be registered online as a member of the Creative Capacity Fund’s NextGen Arts cohort. You
are registered in the NextGen Arts cohort if you completed the online NextGen Arts survey.
• Previous grantees who received NextGen awards one year ago or more at the time of their second

The Professional Development Grants are provided every month, with the deadline for application being on the 15th of each month.
