Join us for the first part of a three-part discussion series and hear from our inaugural artist Jeffrey Gibson go deeply behind the scenes to hear a story that only we can tell. What does it take to start an experimental new arts organization in San Francisco today? What have we learned? What will we take forward?
This program will begin with a walkthrough with Ali Gass followed by discussion between Ali, Jeffrey Gibson (joining virtually), and Shannon Jackson.
