As the arts community prepares for this change, we recognize that now is the ideal time to provide emerging arts leaders with support to help them access professional development opportunities that will increase their skills and enhance their leadership capacity.
CCI, in collaboration with The James Irvine Foundation and The William & Flora Hewlett Foundation, created the NextGen Arts Professional Development Grant program to provide emerging California arts leaders with scholarships to pursue activities that will enhance their professional skills. NextGen Arts Grant can be used to take workshops, attend conferences, work with career coaches or management consultants or to create their own innovative leadership program to advance their career.
Decisions on NextGen Arts Grants are made quickly! Apply online by the 15th of any month and you'll have an answer by the 15th of the following month.
