The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation and The James Irvine Foundation are pleased to announce the launch of the Next Gen Arts Initiative, which will provide professional development grants up to $1,000 to emerging arts administrators in California through the Center for Cultural Innovation’s Creative Capacity Fund, along with other program activities.
California arts administrators between the ages of 18 and 35 who are currently employed by a nonprofit arts organization may be eligible to apply for these new grant resources by registering online and completing a profile questionnaire by July 31, 2010. Please help us by sharing this post with appropriate members of your staff. A link to that survey is provided here: http://surveymonkey.com/s/NextGenArts.
We would appreciate any help that you can give us in promoting the online registry and profile questionnaire to emerging arts leaders in California. The information collected from individual employees will be treated strictly confidentially, but we look forward to sharing a summary of findings more broadly with the arts field.
