The folks at Creative Capital are awesome! I applied into the Moving Image and Visual Art grant round, and while I did not get the actual grant, my project proposal made it past the 3000+ letters of inquiry into the application round. And then the project was included in this very cool database!! Check it out soon, the site goes down September 30, 2015.

The March 25 email announcement from Ruby Lerner:
I am pleased to announce Creative Capital's On Our Radar site for 2015, featuring nearly 400 artists' projects from across the country!
In our ongoing efforts to find innovative ways to support artists, we created On Our Radar, a searchable database featuring noteworthy Moving Image and Visual Arts projects that advanced to the second or third round in last year's highly competitive award selection process. Although the featured projects were not ultimately funded by Creative Capital, we feel they are projects to watch and we invite you to explore them.
During each grant round, we have the great privilege of learning about a wealth of exciting artists' projects, but Creative Capital is only able to fund a small percentage of the applicants each year. We hope that by promoting projects "on our radar" to our community of artists, patrons, arts professionals and other friends, we can forge connections that lead to new support and collaborative opportunities.
We invite you to begin exploring On Our Radar to discover an impressive array of artists' projects from across the country! The On Our Radar site will be active through September 2015.
