FACT/SF Fieldwork: Funding offers co-production grants for contemporary dance performances occurring in San Francisco in 2020. Each grant ranges from $500 to $1,000. FACT/SF will likely offer 3-5 grants, disbursing a maximum total of $3,000.
We prioritize providing support for projects that are:
Led by queer artists, LGBT artists, artists of color, and woman-identified artists
Led by artists with a track record of making high-quality work
Viable relative to budget size, venue, artist’s capacity, and artist’s history
FACT/SF Fieldwork: Funding seeks to provide direct financial support to contemporary dance artists who are presenting work in San Francisco. FACT/SF believes that artists need more money for their work, that audiences benefit from seeing different types of work, and that the artistic ecology is strengthened by deepening ties with one another.
