About 2019 Grant Process
In Round 13 of the Alternative Exposure Grant Program, Southern Exposure is awarding over $80,000 to 18 projects with awards ranging from $2,000 to $4,750. With the intent to include more of our neighboring community, the information materials and application is available in Spanish. A live translation to Spanish was provided during one of the In-Person Info Sessions. The awarded public projects will take place in the San Francisco, Alameda, and Contra Costa Counties.
18 recipients were selected from 63 applications: Anthology, Art List Bay Area and The Just A List, Bay Area Art Stars, The Bay Area Contemporary Arts Archive (BACAA), Cloaca Projects, CTRL+SHFT Collective, The HIV Howler: Transmitting Art + Activism, Incline Gallery, Interface Gallery, latent image, Light Field, Living Room Light Exchange. Mutual Stores Collective, Organizing Power, Tich Tourch Festival, Unity Press, Womxn* Art Handlers, and yucca.
