ODC Theater has partnered with the Fleishhacker Foundation to create an eponymous opportunity fund at ODC to support self-producing performing artists through its open access rental program. The Fleishhacker Foundation has made a commitment to support the administration of subsidies to self-producing artists at ODC Theater. Three artists will be awarded a scholarship this round to self-produce/rent ODC’s B. Way Theater from March 1, 2020 – April 30, 2020. Applications will be considered and scored by a panel, and the awarded artists will receive a subsidized rental week in the theater. Awarded artists receive a subsidy covering a minimum of 50% towards space and labor expenses.

Eligibility & Requirements

Recipients must be San Francisco Bay Area performing artists and must self-produce and offer a public performance in ODC Theater’s main space (B. Way Theater) March 1, 2020 – April 30, 2020.
