Grants to this Grantee
for strategic planning
The San Francisco Arts Commission is the public agency that serves the arts and cultural needs of the city’s residents and visitors. Its programs are built on the premise that all residents shall have equal access to arts experiences, and its Cultural Equity Grants program is a national model for serving culturally rich, racially diverse, and economically diverse cities. Following a period of organizational unrest, including the resignation of two directors and the Commission president of eight years, a new director of cultural affairs has been appointed who brings to the agency a commitment to transparency and community engagement. This grant would enable the Commission to undertake a multi-year strategic planning process grounded in a community-wide needs assessment and a guide for the agency’s short- and long-term policies and priorities.
