Unfettering Artists' Productivity and Impact



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.
