Curious Elixirs is thrilled to announce the third annual Curious Creators Grants!
Applications are open NOW.
WHAT IS IT?
The Curious Creators Grants will award over $12,000 in unrestricted funds for artists to pursue the creation of new works in eight categories. This year, we added a new category: COMEDY!
Nearly 3,000 artists have applied since we launched this initiative, with more than $20,000 awarded.
HOW DO YOU ENTER?
Applications are open now. After applications close on September 8, judging begins. A Creative Council will choose five finalists in each category. Finalists will then be presented to the Curious Elixirs community for a final public vote to determine the winner. Winners will be announced in October.
Available categories for submission are:
- Comedy - standup, shorts, podcasts—anything funny
- Food + Beverage - culinary arts, food science + mixology
- Images - photography, video, virtual space + beyond
- Movement - dance, rhythm + all performance arts
- Music - singing, playing, writing, editing + vibing

The winner of each category will be given a $1,500 cash grant, as well as complimentary studio space at Club Curious in Brooklyn. All finalists will receive Curious Cocktail Club memberships.
