We created Five Crows to advance careers for emerging artists and creatives. Good grant writing and application skills offer crucial support for career growth, but balancing a generative art practice with the slog of bureaucratic applications often leaves one or both lacking. Our clients are artists in the broadest definition: performers, craftsmen, writers, filmmakers, visual artists, designers, podcasters, and musicians, and emerging defines a moment in one’s career, not an age. With years of experience receiving grants and providing edits and feedback for other artists, we look forward to helping you meet your goals!

Our name comes from the superstition of counting crows that began in the 1600s, where the number of crows you see corresponds with an omen: One for sorrow, two for mirth, three for a wedding, four for birth, five for rich, six for poor, seven for a witch; I can tell you no more.

Five Crows is here to conjure prosperity for you: money coming in, good business.
