"I am pleased to announce the launch of Creative Capital's new online initiative, On Our Radar, featuring 380 artists' projects from across the country. In our ongoing quest to find innovative ways to support artists, we have created On Our Radar, a searchable database featuring noteworthy Film/Video and Visual Arts projects that advanced to the second or third phase of our highly competitive grant round last year. Although the featured projects were not ultimately funded, we feel they are projects to watch.
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, arts professionals, supporters 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! On Our Radar will be active through August 31, 2012.
