Overview
Since 2000, the Wallace Alexander Gerbode and Hewlett foundations have partnered to make grants to Bay Area arts organizations to commission new works of performing arts by gifted individual playwrights, composers, choreographers, and multimedia artists. The resulting new works have their world premieres in the San Francisco Bay Area, enriching Bay Area audiences. A renewal grant to Gerbode will support the Special Awards in the Arts program, making grants to commission six new works in one discipline per year. The next 3-year grant period will focus on Dance, Theater and Music respectively, striving to support a broad array of work reflective of the cultural and aesthetic diversity of the region.
