for a regranting program for individual performing artists in the Bay Area  
The Center for Cultural Innovation, based in Los Angeles with a satellite office in San Francisco, promotes knowledge sharing, networking, and financial independence for individual artists and creative entrepreneurs. To do this, it gives business training, grants, and loans to artists in the field and also incubates innovative projects that can offer them new program knowledge, tools, and practices. A grant to the Center would support regranting to Bay Area performing and media artists as part of its Investing in Artists grants program and also build a working cash reserve for its Creative Capacity Quick Grant program, which reimburses artists and administrators for workshops, conferences, and technical assistance fees.
