GRANTS, AWARDS AND OPPORTUNITIES FOR ARTISTS
There are only a few questions that rising artists ask more frequently than: where can I find financial support for artists? who offers creative grants? or which organizations will help publish my work?
To help it easier for artists to find funding opportunities, Captured Nouns scoured the internet in search of as many grants, venture pitches, financial awards, and other opportunities to support the underrepresented creatives in our community.
We’ll be updating this monthly, so make sure to sign up for our newsletter to get the latest updates.
We also understand a second pair of eyes on our applications and portfolio can’t hurt. So feel free to shoot an email to email@example.com at least a week before the deadline of an application if you’d like us to give you a helping hand.
Good luck everyone!
