Grants of up to $10,000 to individual artists living and working in San Francisco, to stimulate the creation and presentation of high-quality works of art throughout the city’s neighborhoods. The program considers proposals for projects in alternating disciplines each year. We will consider proposals in fiscal year 2011-12, for performing arts: dance, music, and theater. Support for multi-disciplinary projects (within the disciplines being offered) are available each year.
