Secession Art & Design Blog

Secession Art & Design opened our Bernal Heights location in August of 2007, and has since grown to represent over 50 independent artists and designers. Our retail location is a gallery, boutique, and workspace combined, creating an untraditional storefront that allows customers to experience curated shows by owner, Eden Stein, and see the process of art being made in-house by Heather Robinson.

 

Eden wins a grant from the SF Women's Entrepreneurship Fund

This week is one that I will remember for the rest of my life. I wrote a grant, presented in front of a panel of a dozen people (nerve-wracking), and was honored to be the first one awarded through the San Francisco Women's Entrepreneurship Fund. On Monday I received the grant and was celebrated by Mayor Mark Farrell, MEDA, OEWD, Supervisor Hillary Ronen, Ani Rivera, Erin Archuleta and many friends for my mission to keep art and culture alive in San Francisco. I am still glowing from being recognized by the city for the dedication and hard work that goes on behind the scenes to run my small business. This grant is not just a win for my business, but for the more than seventy independent companies I support. This is a win for the arts and the Mission Bernal community. 

Thank you for sharing this experience and supporting Secession. Stop by this weekend to say hello, 12-7pm.

XO Eden

PS: If you are a woman entrepreneur, I hope you'll apply for this grant too!

 “I felt honored when I got the call that I would be receiving a $5,000 grant through SFWEF. Owning a small business in San Francisco has been a test of patience, persistence, and resilience. All the things I dreamed up for this grant were items that were not in this year’s Secession budget. I am over the moon that I now have the funding to grow my business and set myself up to be a multi-use space that can support art, fashion, film, and music. The grant will fund a video sharing my story, photography, business coaching and support, and a projector and screen so I can start to show indie films.”
