Southern Exposure's Alternative Exposure grant program supports the independent, self-organized work of artists and small groups that play a critical and significant role within the San Francisco Bay Area arts community. Alternative Exposure provides monetary awards—giving grants of up to $5,000—to foster the development and presentation of artist-led projects and programs that are direct, accessible, and open to the public. Funded activities may include a new exhibition or exhibition series, the ongoing work of an arts venue or collective, a public art project, a one-time event or performance, publications directly related to the visual arts, an online project, an artist residency, a series of film screenings, and more.
