Grants to this Grantee
for CA$H, the Creative Assistance for the Small and Hungry regranting program
Each year, Theatre Bay Area makes approximately forty CA$H grants which enable a diverse range of small-budget organizations and individuals to develop innovative new dance and theater works that are vital to fostering a dynamic performing arts ecosystem. Although the grants are small—$2,000 or $4,000—these critical investments have helped numerous emerging artists and ensembles to stage their works. With renewed support, Theatre Bay Area would continue to provide these important resources to the community and work to increase the alignment of this work with its new strategic plan.
for Bay Area Performing Arts Spaces
As described above, Theatre Bay Area will partner with Dancers Group and Fractured Atlas Productions to create and implement a marketing and communications plan for Bay Area Performing Arts Spaces, increase user traffic to the site, and provide local customer service.
