With generous support from the Kresge Foundation, we were able to offer 44 workshops at subsidized cost to 33 partners in communities around the country from 2010-12. For the final year of this grant (workshops taking place in 2013/14), we are emphasizing cultural equity and aim to use the remaining subsidy funds to help bring our workshops to organizations that specifically serve racially and ethnically diverse groups of artists. We are not actively soliciting applications, but we welcome conversations with interested organizations.
Observer Travel Subsidy
We have a small amount of funding to help subsidize the travel for potential partner organizations who would like to observe one of our workshops. Past partners have reported that seeing a workshop first-hand helped them better understand what we offer and how it can impact their community of artists. Seeing a workshop also enables new partners to talk about the PDP program in an informed way and promote it to local funding sources, potential participants and media outlets.
Potential partner organizations observe PDP workshops as guests and will receive all workshop materials. Travel and lodging costs are usually the responsibility of the organization, but our Observer Travel Subsidy will help to defray those costs.
Travel subsidies of up to $500 are awarded on a case-by-case basis for a limited time. Please see our online workshop calendar for a list of upcoming PDP workshops that you might observe. Email krista [at] creative-capital [dot] org for more info.
