It’s turning out to be a great spring full of arts & culture events in San Francisco. My Emerging Arts Professionals fellowship program is in full gear with our own “Spring Series” called “Deconstruction.” Get the latest and greatest from emergingsf.org and on Twitter @emergingarts.
(*Original post from April now updated with event recaps for those who missed it):
The Arts Skyline 2015Wednesday, March 27 at the Center for New Music“With major renovations and new building projects for both longstanding arts institutions and emerging ones underway, the Bay Area’s Arts Skyline is undergoing a significant shift – in philosophy and in practice. Creative placemaking and other trends have begun to inform a reimagined concept of the spaces and places in which we create, exchange, imagine, perform, and present; transient multipurpose projects from pop-ups to reclaimed spaces are transforming the way we think about the arts institution as place. “Panelists: Barrett Shaver, Director of Development, SFJAZZ; Christopher Borg, Executive Director, Community Music Center; Gina Basso, Public Programs Associate, SFMOMA; Jack Carpenter, Production Director, SF Ethnic Dance Festival
501 See (3) You Later?

“Is the 501(c)(3) model the only way to run an arts organization? Arts and culture organizations face greater challenges as traditional arts funding decreases and philanthropic needs shift rapidly. Join us to learn about new financial models including benefit corporations (B corps), low-profit limited liability corporations (L3Cs) , and the emerging economy of social enterprises and impact investing. Experts from the field will teach you essential information on each of these new financial models while you mingle with arts, culture, and business workers from across the Bay Area region. We will conclude the evening with a fun arts prototyping activity giving you the opportunity to make a creative enterprise using one of the new financial models.”
Panelists: Mariko Chang (Former EAP Fellow & Masters Candidate at JFK University); Andy Fyfe (Community Developmment at B Lab); Josh Furnas (Owner at Selfless); Daniel Roberts (Attorney at K2 Law Group)
*I’ll make sure to add the link to the event recap for 501 See (3) You Later? when it’s available.
Hope you enjoyed these public programs. These community events are what I love best about being part of EAP. And I know the EAPers and panelists worked hard to make it an informative, connective, and fun experience for all.
Stay tuned for the next 2 events in my next post in May!
