Project Description

With roots reaching back to 1968, SFArtsED has architected its mission on the foundational work of renowned artist, activist, and educator, Ruth Asawa (1926-2013). Today, at the threshold of a 6th decade, SFArtsED exists to perpetuate, sustain, and build upon an unparalleled 50-year legacy of exceptional participatory experiences in the arts provided to well over 250,000 residents of San Francisco—children, their families, schools, community arts spaces, and neighborhoods—so that individually and collectively ALL are better equipped to elevate, utilize and share their creative abilities to face head on contemporaneous social, cultural, and economic challenges. SFArtsED’s in-school and out-of-school programs are distinguished by a corps of more than 80 practicing artists and influencers who work with and inspire young people and their families through a shared love of creative exploration, discovery, and celebration of cultures and communities.
