Organizations were eligible to apply for subsidy for several of PDP's most popular offerings, and grants were awarded to support a range of weekend and one-day workshops in Strategic Planning, Internet for Artists, Verbal Communications and the new Spanish-language workshop, Taller Profesional de Desarollo para Artistas.

Since its launch in 2003, PDP has refined its methodologies, developed new ones and shared this work with more than 3,700 artists in nearly 60 communities around the country. PDP's artist-centered approach recognizes that an artist's career plan must stem from his or her own goals and aspirations. The program provides critical professional development resources to a diverse group of individual artists nationwide, helping them to advance their careers and achieve their own definitions of success.

With the support of The Kresge Foundation, Creative Capital has been able to take the program to a new level of activity, updating and expanding its offerings and implementing new methods for reaching artists, both in person and online. We look forward to working with all of our subsidy partners in the year to come!
