About 2018 Grant Process
In Round 12 of the Alternative Exposure Grant Program, Southern Exposure is awarding $75,650 to 17 projects with awards of $4,450. With the intent to include more of our neighboring community, the information materials and application is available in Spanish. A live translation to Spanish was provided during the final In-Person Info Session, held at Southern Exposure for the first year as well. The awarded public projects will take place in the San Francisco, Alameda, and Contra Costa Counties.
17 recipients were selected from 73 applications: A Single Drop, Chispa, Emergent Landscapes, FILF, Heavy Breathing, HUSH-HUSH, JAGAH, Kalahati Project, SAMA Collective, Oakland Summer School, Off the Walls/Talking Murals, Open Windows Cooperative, The Burl Concentrate, The Church of Black Feminist Thought,The Milkbar, The Walk Discourse, and We Stay Here Pintando Juntxs.
An outside panel of three organizers including Natalia Mount of Pro Arts, Justin Carder of Round 10 grantee E. M. Wolfman Books, and Julia Cole. Who administers Kansa City's Charlotte Street foundation Rocket Grants program, selected the final grantees. We are all incredibly impressed with the stellar quality of the applications.
