We'd love to see you onstage!
One of the things that makes San Francisco unique is our performing arts community. We believe in this community because we're a part of it.
We are dancers, singers, acrobats, drag queens, and more. We’ve experienced firsthand the struggles and joys of performing. That’s why we’re awarding three $1000 grants to help local performance groups bring their vision to life.
The three performing arts groups that are selected for the grant will receive $1000 to use towards their performance. An initial grant payment of $500 will be awarded upon selection, and a final grant payment of $500 will be awarded after the first paid ticket is sold to your performance on Eventbrite. See Official Grant Rules for more details.
Important note: Any and all taxes on the grant, including income and/or sales taxes, are the sole responsibility of winners. See Official Grant Rules for more details.
The deadline to submit your application is Saturday December 15, 2012 by 11:59pm PST. Please submit the following to be considered:
- ✓ Application Form
- ✓ Please be prepared to provide links to your previous performances in the application.
Eventbrite’s $1000 performing arts grant is open to any performing arts group that meets the eligibility criteria, which are as follows:
- ✓ Your performing arts group must hold a paid performance in San Francisco or the surrounding Bay Area on or before Sunday, May 5, 2013.

We’ve worked with the performing arts community from our very beginnings, and have helped groups sell tickets online and grow their audience.
