Who We Are

Arts for a Better Bay Area is a coalition of people and organizations coming together to create a member powered network, cultivate a healthy & accessible environment for arts and culture to thrive and to inform & mobilize individuals, organizations, and coalitions on policies connected to a rapidly changing region.

We want to thank the people who have powered this network:

Team of Stewards: 

Volunteers who represent a cross section of the field.
They guide and develop programming and organization infrastructure.
