Collaboration is important. It’s why we partner with local organizations to offer our workshops, because we know that things aren't over when the workshop ends. We want to see artists and arts organizations thriving in local communities nationwide. Our artist-to-artist model encourages artists to work together, creating a vibrant, growing and long-lasting arts community.
We often find that our workshops lead to stronger artistic communities in the cities where the workshop is presented, and our partners play a big role in this. They provide helpful insights into the specific needs of artists in their region and the subsequent impact of the PDP program locally. We are proud to work with many leading arts organizations across the country and internationally, and as we work with new partners every year, this list continues to grow.

What Our Partners Are Saying
“We always enjoy working with Creative Capital. I know the artists were blown away by the program. I had an email from one this morning telling me she has already made an appointment to get new photos of her work."
– Kelsey Karper, Associate Director, Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition
“This workshop empowered our participants to leverage their creative talents into sustainable and successful lives. These artists will go on to be leaders of their communities and act as catalysts of positive change as New Orleans moves forward, reinventing itself.”
– Tori Bush, Programs Director, Creative Alliance New Orleans
"You cannot imagine how meaningful it was to open that door for our Spanish-speaking artists. Again, thank you so much. It is always a joy and a pleasure to have Creative Capital here with us."
– Adriana S. Perez, Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs
“The leaders’ knowledge and generosity was the necessary catalyst--a bit of magic you guys seem to have found a way to bottle and share to great effect. We are extremely grateful to be able to work with you. Please thank the leaders for all they did for our artists this past weekend. And I very much appreciate all your oversight of deadlines and details to keep us on track. It all works smoothly because of how effectively you manage the behind-the-scenes."
– Jeff Pettus, Senior Program Director, Artists and Organizations for the North Carolina Arts Council
“It’s wonderful to get the workshop from a working artist, who has had similar experiences and struggles to the artists participating in the workshop. The workshop naturally forces us into a zone of discomfort: thinking about money and long-term planning, but it is so necessary and anything that demystifies the art career is so appreciated.”
– Beatriz Santiago Muñoz, Program Director, Beta-Local, San Juan, Puerto Rico
“The Creative Capital Professional Development Workshops have been invaluable not only to Florida’s individual artists, but to our cultural community as a whole. This program is truly one of the most worthwhile offerings that we have for individual artists. Many have commented that it had more impact on their careers than any grant or fellowship they received from us."
– Florida Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs
“Combining plenary meeting(s) along with mid-sized group breakout sessions for the participants, the high faculty-to-student ratio along with the type and variety of sessions within the seminar provided a valuable in-depth experience for the artists in our community. The artists enjoyed this program. As we move forward with the implementation of the Creative Broward 2020: A plan for Cultural and Economic Development in Broward County, this seminar came at an auspicious time for our area's artists. With your help, we are building an entrepreneurial roadmap for this area's creative sector...The Broward County cultural community benefited from this worthwhile and unique program. We look forward to working with you again.”
– Jody Horne-Leshinsky, Interim Director, Broward County Cultural Division, FL
