Creative Investment Program Workshop for Broward-Based Artists Set for Today
Broward Cultural Division invites interested Broward-based artists to a workshop for the First Cycle of the Creative Investment Program, offered today, April 29 at 5:30 p.m. in the Broward County Main Library, Cybrary Computer Lab, 7th Floor, 100 S. Andrews Ave., Fort Lauderdale.
The purpose of the Creative Investment Program is to assist eligible Broward-based practicing professional artists to fund small but complete creative entrepreneur projects for which applicants have not received funding through any other Cultural Division incentive program. The project must be an exhibition, a performance or other arts activity. The workshop will also prepare applicants on how to submit an online application.
Recent examples of artists who have been funded include Jenny Larson, chorographer -Look at How You are Looking at Me When I'm Telling You This; Chuck Osuchowski, Printmaker -Inspiration and Printmaking: Serigraphy Workshops and Leah Brown, Visual Artist - Beep Bop Boop, Interactive Art Installation.
Practicing professional artists 18 years or older, residing in Broward County continuously for the immediate 12 consecutive months prior to the filing date of application, may apply. The program supports eligible artists who have created a recognized body of original works of art within an artistic discipline over a sustained period of time, and pursue this work as a means of livelihood and/or a way to achieve the highest level of professional recognition. An artist may apply for up to $2,000 per award on a funds-available basis. Visit Broward Cultural Division website for more eligibility details.
The next Creative Investment Program application deadline is Monday, June 2, 2014 at 11:59 p.m. for projects implemented October 1, 2014 through September 30, 2015. There is no fee for the workshop.
