Arts Grant Update: Top Ten Finalists

As you may recall, in November, we unveiled the Eventbrite Performing Arts Grant. We encouraged local performing arts groups from San Francisco to apply with the promise that we’d award three groups with a $1,000 grant for their next performance (to be ticketed on Eventbrite, obviously).

Almost fifty groups applied for the grant. After our panel of judges spent hours (and hours, and hours) combing through applications and watching videos, they were able to pare down the list to ten finalists. Trust us, this was no small feat. Among all the talented groups in the Bay Area, our judges were really impressed with each group’s mission and efforts in growing and inspiring the performing arts community.

In alphabetical order, here are our ten finalists:

• #Hella Funny

• Alphabet Rockers

• Clerestory

• CounterPULSE

• Funkanometry SF Dance Company

• Left Coast Theatre Company

• Philein/ZiRo Production

• Ray of Light Theatre Company

• Sarah Bush Dance Project

• TonicEffect

In order to be selected as one of the top 3 groups to receive the Eventbrite Performing Arts Grant, we’ll need to meet the groups in person! We’ll be meeting with each group individually in the next week so we can learn more about each group and their upcoming performance, as well as how this grant will help the groups further their mission.  Stay tuned for pictures, videos, and stories….and our final three groups, the recipients of the first ever Eventbrite Performing Arts Grant!
