Center for Cultural Innovation, with offices in Los Angeles and San Francisco, promotes knowledge sharing, networking, and financial independence for individual artists and creative entrepreneurs by providing business training; grants and loans; and incubating innovative projects that create new program knowledge, tools, and practices for artists in the field. A grant to the organization, currently under the leadership of a seasoned interim director as it undergoes an executive transition, would support regranting to individual performing and media artists in the Bay Area, as part of its Investing in Artists grants program. Funds are used to push the envelope of an artist’s creative process, explore new artistic collaborations, or experiment within an art form.
