Grants to this Grantee
for organizational adaptation  

CounterPulse supports emerging multi-disciplinary artists who are engaged in the creation of cutting-edge and contemporary performance, often from a queer or LGBTQ perspective. Its programs serve this community of artists through the commissioning and production of new work and providing fiscal sponsorship services and subsidized rehearsal and performance space. This grant advances the Performing Arts Program’s Communities strategy by ensuring a cultural home for queer and avant-garde movement artists, many of whom are facing displacement. This grant will support CounterPulse’s adaptation planning and implementation.

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. It provides 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 recently renovated facility is a beacon of neighborhood revitalization in San Francisco’s Tenderloin neighborhood, as well as a stable space for performance artists who are challenged by displacement and the high cost of rehearsal and performance space in San Francisco.
