Other Highlighted Events
San Francisco Arts Town Hall
We need supporters who live or work in these Districts to attend and speak up for the arts. Click here to find out what district you live or work in. Attend one of the town hall meetings that apply to you and tell the Supervisors why the arts are important to you, your community, and the entire city. Thank them for their support and urge them to continue fully funding Grants for the Arts and the San Francisco Arts Commission.
Together, we can protect the arts in San Francisco and make sure all artists and arts organizations have the financial support they need!
