Program Announcement: Mission Artivism Project

Thursday, March 1, 2018 - Monday, December 31, 2018

Rooted in the celebration of community tradition, the Mission Artivism Project (MAP) is a civic engagement program focusing on cultural activism and site place-keeping.

 

We are very thankful for the support of the Kenneth Rainin Foundation and the California Arts Council for helping us execute this place-based public art initiative that will serve as a community bridge builder. The MAP activities are a series of "on-the-go" artistic activities that offer a rapid response to the needs of the most at risk communities and it will develop a housing advocacy model rooted in the retention of the artistic and cultural legacy of the Mission District. 
The MAP activities includes: ARTruck Residencies, Performance Based Commissions and a Temporary Mural on 1990 Folsom Street (facing 16th Street). While still in its curatorial process, it is an exciting project that will engage in practices that foster our communities' traditions and spirit. We invite you to follow us in this journey and stay tuned for updates.
