New Grant for Arts and Community Group Partnerships in San Francisco

Here’s a grant for those of you practicing D & D through the Arts in San Francisco: The San Francisco Arts Commission (http://sfartscommission.org/) has announced “Arts & Communities: Innovative Partnerships,” a new grant program to fund a range of diverse projects which together represent a spectrum of artistic ideas and innovative ways of working with neighborhoods and communities.

The initiative will support artists and arts organizations in San Francisco, of any medium, as the lead partner collaborating with a non-arts community-based organization or group located in San Francisco. Immigrant service organizations with an established arts program are also encouraged to apply and need not partner with a non-arts organization. The partners may choose to work with a neighborhood (as defined by geography) or with a community (as can be defined by culture, choice, or special interest). The partnership will actively work together to develop appropriate and innovative ways to make visible a neighborhood/community’s unique characteristics, social assets, issues, and challenges. The process will result in an activity or work that engages the public.

Two types of grants are available: 1) Exploration Grants –awards of between $5,000 to $10,000 each over a period of up to nine months for the exploration of ideas and to engage in substantive planning; 2) Realization Grants — awards of up to $35,000 each over a period of up to eighteen months to support well-conceived and planned projects.

Complete application guidelines are available online, and can be downloaded at the SFAC Web site. The deadline for applications is September 6, 2007.
