Curatorial Grant



The French American Cultural Society launched the Curatorial Grant in 2016. The program offers curators, programmers, directors and project leaders from the Bay Area and the Pacific Northwest the opportunity to travel to France, and engage with their counterparts. The program seeks to identify and bring together actors of urban, cultural and artistic innovation to initiate cooperative projects on different scales: territories, spaces, and actors.
