- A partnership to design San Francisco’s future
By Deborah Cullinan - Friday Jul 7, 2017
Focusing on inquiry and our promise to be the creative home for civic action, we invited people — artists, designers, planners and more — to discuss and debate that question.[...] by gathering diverse perspectives around this line of inquiry, we produced a cascading series of answers that made an impact far beyond the arts.[...] this abundant conversation led to new ways of thinking about how our cities change, and it opened the door to a groundbreaking partnership between our center and the San Francisco Planning Department.Each year we invite artists, engineers, athletes, scientists, teachers, activists and other creative changemakers who are leading cultural movements to an event called the YBCA100 Summit.A final platform involves civic coalitions that create lasting change and policy shifts.In response to questions of equity and labor, YBCA’s Youth Fellows partnered with the Healthy Corner Store Coalition and developed a Tenderloin Food Justice community art campaign in collaboration with residents in the Tenderloin, one of our city’s most socially and economically challenged neighborhoods and a food desert.During their school-year-long fellowships, the participating teens designed and installed art interventions specifically for the Tenderloin’s Mid City Market, one of five convenience stores that the Tenderloin Healthy Corner Store Coalition has recently converted into a place filled with fresh fruits and vegetables.YBCA also helped create the Tenderloin People’s Garden, a community space bringing together hundreds of volunteers of all ages, ethnicities and cultures to grow food — and offering their garden as a place for Tenderloin youth and their families to build knowledge and community.Since membership is about citizenship — about being part of an institution — people should be invited to participate at whatever price they can afford, so that our arts center can be about igniting inclusive, lasting forward momentum.Arts institutions of all shapes and sizes across our country have the creative resources needed to inspire us to participate in our struggling democracy, to fuel our public imagination.
