FUNDING OPPORTUNITY: Hewlett 50 Arts Commissions - Dance and Movement


The online application is now open for the third round of our Hewlett 50 Arts Commissions!

In this latest round, 10 local nonprofit organizations will receive grants of $150,000 each to commission significant new works of dance and movement-based performance and premiere them in the Bay Area. Applications are due by Wednesday, November 13.

Launched in 2017 in celebration of the Hewlett Foundation’s fiftieth anniversary, the Hewlett 50 Arts Commissions is a five- year, $8 million commissioning initiative that is the largest of its kind in the United States. The initiative will support the creation of 50 exceptional works of performing arts and their premiere in the Bay Area through grants of $150,000 to Bay Area nonprofit organizations. Nonprofit organizations will receive funding to achieve their creative vision in partnership with the commissioned artists, who may be based anywhere in the world.

The ultimate beneficiaries of the new program will be local audiences, who will be among the first to see important new works in the performing arts premiered in their communities.

The Hewlett 50 Arts Commissions align with our longstanding commitment to providing Bay Area audiences with access to world class performing arts, and it is our hope that the works created will go on to inspire, engage and challenge audiences across the country and around the world in years to come.
