Alleluia Panis, Kularts Director, named first winner of the San Francisco Arts Commission’s Artistic Legacy Grant

APWe are so excited to share this news, our very own Alleluia ‘Manai’ Panis is the first ever recipient of SFAC’s Artistic Legacy Grant.

The grant acknowledges the impact of an artistic director that has served their organization for 25+ years, and through their leadership, the organization is considered to be a vital member of the respective community that they serve and has history of working to educate the broader community on the importance of their culture & or artistic genre.

Kularts Pamilya save the date for the Commission’s Third Annual Grants Convening set for the evening of Tuesday Sept 26 where Alleluia will be honored! 

Congratulations Allelulia ‘Manai’!
