The Investing in Artists grants program was established by the Center for Cultural Innovation (CCI) in 2007 to enhance the working lives and strengthen the creative support system for California artists working in all disciplines. Since that time, with the support of The James Irvine Foundation and The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, CCI has awarded over $2 million to 270 diverse artists working in various disciplines across the state.
Through the continued support of The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, CCI is pleased to offer an additional three rounds of funding (2015-2017) for the Investing in Artists program for Bay Area performing and media artists.
