CCI understands that artists working in all disciplines, at all stages of their careers, need direct support to develop their creative practice. For this reason, we constantly evolve, research and refine our programs and forge beneficial partnerships that allow us to quickly address new developments and provide artists with support in areas where other funding sources may be limited.
A consortium of California arts funders formed to strengthen the support system for California artists, emerging arts leaders, and nonprofit cultural organizations through the administration of the following funding programs:
The CALI program provides professional development grants to emerging arts leaders throughout California to pursue leadership opportunities and activities that will advance their careers in the arts.
Professional development for individual artists and arts organizations in the Bay Area and Los Angeles (limited eligibility).
Supporting individual artists working in the greater Bay Area.
Deadline: July 2017 TBD
