Arts Loan Fund Meeting

Host Organization: The San Francisco Foundation


At the next Arts Loan Fund meeting, the Steering Committee will engage in a special 1 1/2 hour peer learning designed by the San Francisco Foundation.  During the session, participants will discuss opportunities between leading arts foundations and those in philanthropy that are bridging the gap between movement building and arts funding.  The San Francisco Foundation staff has invited Favianna Rodriquez, Executive Director of CultureStrike, Sandra Davis and Alexandra Desautels from The California Endowment, and Gina Acebo from the Akonadi Foundation.

The ALF policy discussion will be postponed to the next Steering Commitee meeting on October 12th.

The San Francisco Foundation believes that art and cultural have a powerful role to play in creating equity across the Bay Area. Towards that end, we are excited to convene a workshop that will discuss opportunities between leading arts foundations and those in philanthropy that are already bridging that gap between movement building and arts funding. We believe that cultural change precedes political change, and the current political climate requires us to think more expansively about the role of art and culture in building power and challenging inequality. Favianna Rodriguez, Executive Director of CultureStrike, will provide some frameworks and tools about how art can transform ideology and support movement building efforts. She will share case studies, discuss the pipeline of cultural inequality, and facilitate group dialogue about how the arts can build alternative systems of power and write a new story about inclusion.

9:30 a.m. - 10:30 a.m. - Steering Commitee Meeting
10:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. - Peer Learning: Movement Building & Arts Funding | Organized by The San Francisco Foundation
