2018 Rainin Foundation Open Spaces Grant for TRANSITION24

Great news for the new year!!

Survival Project, in collaboration with the Chinese Culture Center of San Francisco, is one of four 2018 award recipients from the Kenneth Rainin Foundation’s Open Spaces public art program. The grants support nonprofit organizations and artists to partner to create projects in Oakland and San Francisco that engage communities, showcase artistic experimentation, and energize public spaces.

As our artist collaborative’s second project, TRANSITION24 will be a series of multimedia installations using San Francisco’s 24 MUNI bus line to engage communities along its route in an exploration of survival, access, migration, and resilience. The project will showcase oral histories, photography and public archives while incorporating MUNI infrastructure as sites of public art.

We’re honored to be in such good company — Flyaway Productions, Galeria de la Raza, and Youth Speaks are 2018 fellow grantees. Please visit the Rainin Foundation’s website for more info about the Open Spaces program and all of this year’s winning projects.
