Silicon Valley Community Foundation arts initiative

Someone forwarded me this announcement from the SVCF, announcing a major arts initiative. (Jump on it because one of the three workshops has already passed).

At first, I thought it was part of the big Bay Area funds-for-artists initiative from last year, inspired by a study where they discovered artists where - gasp! - underpaid.

(Well, to be fair, the point of the study was not to discover artists' quality-of-lifestyle, but 'the various factors that enable artists to pursue their careers" - or perhaps prevent them from pursuing their careers.....).

So thanks again to the many foundations that believe in the arts, when the state (in both senses of the word) decides not to.
