Breast Advice

Breast Advice is a play written entirely using true stories. While backstage during a show, the conversation somehow turned to bras and boobs. As a woman with multiple invisible illnesses, the playwright was literally shocked at how many others were together in the crowded dressing room and an extraordinary amount of breast cancer survivors. It was at that moment that Breast Advice was born.


Treasure Tampa

Treasure Tampa (T²) facilitates creative placemaking – the utilization of creative talent to elevate a community through cross-sector and community partnerships – in Tampa.  Through education, collaboration, and funding, Treasure Tampa will increase the quantity of placemaking projects within Tampa.  Ultimately projects funded through this initiative will be fun and bring new reasons to why the community treasures Tampa.


The goal of the Gobioff Foundation microgrant program is to enhance the cultural landscape of the Tampa Bay area (Hillsborough and Pinellas counties) through small grants that encourage and make possible publicly accessible art projects and events.
