SoEx Announces 2009 Alternative Exposure Grant Deadline
Southern Exposure's 2009 Grant Program, Alternative Exposure Seeks Applicants
Deadline to Apply: November 6, 2009
Southern Exposure is now accepting applications for Round III of the Alternative Exposure Grant Program, which offers up to $3,500 grants to individuals and unincorporated groups in San Francisco and Alameda Counties working in the visual arts.
Southern Exposure's Alternative Exposure Grant Program seeks to fuel the energy of the local visual arts community by supporting the work of unincorporated groups, burgeoning art venues and gathering spaces, publications, collectives, and events. Grants provide direct support to projects that contribute to their communities and provide frameworks of support for artists to create and continue their work. The program aims to support the public presentation of new work with the resulting project activities accessible and presented to the public.
As one of San Francisco's oldest artist-run spaces, Southern Exposure strives to support the energy of the Bay Area visual arts community and support artists' work in a direct and accessible way. The Alternative Exposure grant program was launched in 2007 in response to the vibrant, under-the-radar, work we were seeing developed and supported by individuals and small groups working in the San Francisco Bay Area. In the first two rounds of the program Southern Exposure granted $95,000 of direct financial support to 33 Bay Area visual arts groups and projects.
