Artist Support


"Creation is an act of healing that forges new paths and possibilities, for our individual selves, our communities, our traditions—and for survival itself."
Prumsodun Ok, "A Deepest Blue"

Through our Artist Support Program, we build creative capacity for Bay Area-based refugee, immigrant and BIPOC artists and cultural practitioners through professional development, networking opportunities, and project planning support. In all of our work, we center the artists, their wellness and their dreams.

We collaborate with artists to identify the needs they have in project or professional development, and provide support through the following:

Project Support & Coordination

Including fiscal sponsorship, mini-grant program, administrative and logistical support for exhibitions and programs.

Professional Development

Including workshops and trainings on grant writing, portfolio reviews, and networking opportunities.

Artist Opportunities

Creating and identifying opportunities for artists to become community educators, leaders, teaching artists, and performers.

Community Building

Including Membership program, artist meet-ups, our mentorship program for artists, and more.
