Deadline: September 22nd, 2016
Southern Exposure’s Alternative Exposure grant program supports the independent, self-organized work of artists and small groups that play a critical and significant role within the San Francisco Bay Area arts community.
Alternative Exposure provides monetary awards—giving grants from $500 to $5,000—to foster the development and presentation of artist-led projects and programs that are direct, accessible, and open to the public. Funded activities may include a new exhibition or exhibition series, the ongoing work of an arts venue or collective, a public art project, a one-time event or performance, publications directly related to the visual arts, an online project, an artist residency, a series of film screenings, and more.
Alternative Exposure grants directly fund visual arts projects that provide frameworks of support for artists to create and continue their work. Alternative Exposure is focused on supporting projects that present the work of more than one artist. Both individuals and groups are eligible to apply. If applying as a group, the artistic group or venue can be either long-standing or formed specifically for this opportunity.
Note: The lead organizer must live in San Francisco or Alameda counties. For groups, additional collaborators may live outside of these counties but the majority of collaborators in the group must live in an eligible county.
