Creativity Grants

Creativity Grants support activities and general operations for Independent Artists and Organizations.

The Creativity Grant Program strengthens the vitality and sustainability of artists and small organizations to maintain a strong and stable arts infrastructure in the State of Maryland. The Creativity Grant also provides opportunities to serve the growing needs of relevant arts projects and collaborations within Maryland communities.

Applications are currently closed and will re-open with the official rollout of the Independent Artist Network (IAN), a coordinated artist employment initiative under which each the Arts in Education, Creativity, Public Art Across Maryland, and Touring programs will be housed. The IAN will feature increased funding amounts for the four programs and more robust opportunities for artists to feature their work in an online directory connecting them with employment opportunities.
