Rooting Community Through Art and Place

Arts and culture creates community, celebrates identity and expression, make cities vibrant, and spurs the economy. What is at risk when artists and arts and culture organizations are displaced?

Bay Area markets have made it difficult for arts and culture organizations to thrive in the region. Facing issues like rising rent increases and displacement when long-time venues were sold has forced many organizations to leave cities or shut its doors altogether. The loss of these organizations have left painful holes in the vibrancy and identity of communities.

What solutions are arts and culture organizations finding to address the problem and what role can philanthropy play to support these efforts?

Join NCG and the Arts Loan Fund to hear from three Bay Area organizations about space issues and challenges facing arts and culture organizations and the opportunities to root organizations in community through real estate acquisition. We will discuss their current space acquisition projects and their goals to create thriving arts ecosystems and vibrant communities. We’ll also discuss what funders can do to help retain arts and culture organizations in the region
