More than $2.5 million in grants and services is committed to 41 artist projects.

Creative Capital, the national organization that supports individual artists, announces the recipients of its 2009 grants. Initial awards of $10,000 have been made to 41 projects in emerging fields, innovative literature and performing arts. These projects represent 61 artists across the country working individually and in collaboration. Each project becomes eligible for additional funds of as much as $50,000 over the course of the organization’s multi-year commitment. Artists also participate in Creative Capital’s distinctive Artist Services Program valued at $25,000 per artist. This program offers artists skills-building assistance in areas such as fundraising, networking, marketing, and strategic planning with the goal of advancing both their projects and their careers. So far Creative Capital has devoted more than $7 million to the Artists Services Program and has served more than 400 artists in its ten-year history.
