By Introducing a New Process, A Foundation Seeks to Ease Application Burdens

The Kenneth Rainin Foundation’s New & Experimental Works (NEW) Program, a grant program that provides project support to small and mid-size dance, theater, and multidisciplinary arts organizations that enable Bay Area artists to produce timely, visionary projects, has rethought its application process.

Hoping to make their program application less burdensome, they introduced a new process.

According to a recent post written by Adriana Griñó, program officer, Arts, "the foundation will determine whether this approach is sustainable for the NEW Program based on what we learn in this trial phase. Regardless, we see this as an important first step in addressing the sector-wide issue of time and labor spent on the grant application process."

The Kenneth Rainin Foundation’s New & Experimental Works (NEW) Program opens to applicants January 6 – February 7, 2020.
