SFAC's Cultural Equity Grants: Arts & Communities: Innovative Partnerships

ACTA - Posted on 17 May 2011

San Francisco Arts Commission

Event Date(s)


The San Francisco Arts Commission's Arts & Communities Initiative will support artists, arts organizations, and immigrant service organizations with established art programs of any medium, as they embrace the role of lead partners, and work closely with community partners, their leaderships and constituencies.  Together, they can engage in innovative creation processes – exploring artistic practice potentially outside of one’s comfort zone – in order to address pressing community needs or celebrate community assets.  The discussions and activities from these partnerships will form inventive, publicly accessible, high quality art projects, and result in an ongoing stimulation of ideas and dialogue.  Together, the culminating public projects will reveal the complex life of San Francisco.

Two types of grants are available: Exploration Grants up to $10,000 and Realization Grants up to $25,000.
