This spring, new applications to the Creative Workforce Fellowship program - a local grant program that directly supports individual artists - were put on hold. Administered by the Community Partnership for Arts and Culture (CPAC) and funded by Cuyahoga Arts & Culture (CAC), the Creative Workforce Fellowship has been awarded to 20 local artists ($20,000 each) every year since 2009. CPAC and CAC agreed to delay any new applications to the program to allow both organizations to learn from the findings of a recently completed independent evaluation on the program. CAC is now reviewing this study, as a part of a broader assessment of its grantmaking. Want to learn more? Join us on July 24th for an informal feedback and Q&A opportunity with Tom Schorgl, president and CEO of the Community Partnership for Arts and Culture, and Karen Gahl-Mills, executive director of Cuyahoga Arts & Culture. This is a free event. For additional background on the status of the Creative Workforce Fellowship program, see updates from Cuyahoga Arts & Culture and Community Partnership for Arts and Culture.
