Grants to this Grantee
for general operating support  
For more than 25 years, CounterPulse has supported hundreds of emerging multidisciplinary artists, who are engaged in the creation of cutting-edge and contemporary performance, with a suite of programs and services that include the commission and production of new work, fiscal sponsorship, and subsidized rehearsal and performance space. CounterPulse's newly purchased and renovated facility at 80 Turk Street has become a beacon of neighborhood revitalization in the Tenderloin, as well as a shelter from displacement in a volatile market for many San Francisco performance artists. A renewal grant will support CounterPulse in expanding its programs in the new space to develop strategic partnerships and reach new audiences.
for the 80 Turk Project  
CounterPulse is a presenter of contemporary performance art in San Francisco's mid-Market neighborhood. CounterPulse provides space and resources for emerging artists and cultural innovators, serving as an incubator for the creation of experimental, multi-disciplinary performance art and dance. The organization reaches more than 15,000 audience members annually, and no audience member is turned away if they cannot afford the price of a ticket. With the recent acquisition of a historic facility, this grant will support efforts to complete the renovation of the theater, which is expected to open by the end of 2016.
