This event is the latest in the San Francisco Foundation’s series on People, Place and Power.

From the beat of the drum to the stroke of the brush to the power of the spoken word, art has been central to the Bay Area’s long history of activism. It’s those movements that have partnered closely with artists that have had some of the strongest ripples, from immigrant rights to the LGBTQ pride movement. In its many forms, art has the power to touch hearts, change minds and strengthen communities during difficult times.

Today, as we face a new set of challenges, protest art is experiencing a renaissance in the Bay Area. With the click of a mouse, movement artists are engaging new audiences on a whole new set of platforms. Join the San Francisco Foundation, together with some of the Bay Area’s most renowned “artivists,” to discuss the role of art in today’s social justice movements.
