Open Call for Arts Impact Endowment Working Group Participants
The San Francisco Arts Commission (SFAC) and Grants for the Arts (GFTA) are City agencies that champion the arts by investing in the arts and culture sector in San Francisco. With the passage of Proposition E and the restoration of the historic hotel tax allocation for the arts, both agencies will receive funding to support a variety of arts initiatives throughout the City through the creation of a new $2.5 million Arts Impact Endowment.
The 2019-2024 Cultural Services Allocation Plan (CSAP) provides a roadmap for the SFAC and GFTA to develop the desired results and outcomes for the four Arts Impact Endowment areas: Arts Education, Core Operating Support, Space, and Individual Artists and calls for a Working Group to further develop the funding recommendations.
WHO ARE WE LOOKING FOR?
The Arts Commission seeks individuals based in the Bay Area who represent a wide range of sectors with expertise in one or more of the following areas: education, real estate development, non-profit management, and small business practices. Selected participants will have demonstrated that they have a deep understanding of equity frameworks and should provide evidence of cross-sector experience within the arts.
Participants must be available to participate in the initial Working Group meetings scheduled for May 16 and May 17, 2019. Deadline to apply is April 1, 2019.
Upon receiving your application, you will be added to our pool of potential participants. Staff will contact you by May 1, 2019, if you have been selected to participate. For further inquiries, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Conflicts of Interest are treated very seriously by the City to ensure ethical decision-making. The Arts Impact Working Group is a passive meeting body* and as such, participants will be required to sign a waiver indicating that they, their employers, clients and family members will not apply for or receive support from the Arts Impact Endowment for a period of one grant cycle.
