Affiliated Programs

Furthering our commitment to supporting individual artists and enriching the cultural landscape, Creative Capital administers affiliate programs that provide support to writers and artists.

Arts Writers Grant ProgramThe Creative Capital | Andy Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant Program supports writers whose work addresses contemporary visual art through project-based grants issued directly to individual authors. The first program of its type, it was founded in recognition of both the financially precarious situation of arts writers and their indispensable contribution to a vital artistic culture. The Arts Writers Grant Program issues awards for articles, blogs, books, new and alternative media, and short-form writing projects and aims to support the broad spectrum of writing on contemporary visual art, from general-audience criticism to academic scholarship.

Doris Duke Performing Artist Awards

The Doris Duke Performing Artist Awards (DDPAA), launched in Fall 2011 in partnership with the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation (DDCF), supporting individual artists in contemporary dance, theater and jazz for extended professional and artistic development. The program was designed to empower, invest in and celebrate notable performing artists, allowing for long-term exploration and research needs unmet by traditional project support. Over the six-year life of the program, DDPAA selected and supported 201 artists through unrestricted grants and access to Creative Capital’s professional development services. Additional funds were available for audience development and to match contributions to artists’ retirement accounts. DDPAA was part of the Doris Duke Performing Artists Initiative, a $50 million program and ended on June 30, 2017. For more information, visit www.ddpaa.org.
