Brava's Storefront Construction Project


Brava's storefronts have been boarded up for years. We are now beginning construction on new facilities in those spaces that include a cafe, new office spaces, new and improved dressing rooms and a green room for artists who perform at BRAVA.

We need to raise $2 million dollars to complete the much needed renovations, which will beautify the 24th Street corridor and improve Brava's ability to provide quality performance space to the community.


Funding for this Project has been provided in part by the California Cultural and Historical Endowment.
