Grant program for nonprofit arts organization now open
Foundation for the Performing Arts Center is offering grant program
–The San Luis Obispo Foundation for the Performing Arts Center has opened its Clifton Swanson Community Access to the arts center’s grant program. This grant program supports the Central Coast’s arts organizations that utilize the Performing Arts Center for their events.
In its sixth year, the fund allows the local arts nonprofits to apply for funding to cover costs, including technical and rental fees. The fund was created in 2015 in honor of Clif Swanson, who was a longtime foundation board member, past president and classical musician.
A central element of the foundation’s mission is to support local performing artists and help contribute to their ongoing success. Established in 1986, the foundation provides and promotes an accessible center for the performing arts in collaboration with their partners, California Polytechnic State University and the City of San Luis Obispo.
The center reopens this fall, welcoming back patrons and abiding by the latest health and safety regulations to ensure everyone feels comfortable during their visit. There will be a variety of programs and shows available for guests, such as a performance on Aug. 28-29 of Antoine de Saint-Exupery’s “The Little Prince” at the Spanos Theatre that will be presented by the San Luis Obispo Movement Arts Center.
All eligible nonprofit arts organizations can now apply for the 2021-2022 season. The grant application is available on the foundation’s website. Grants are due on Tuesday, Aug. 31 by 5 p.m.
