Out of a moment of crisis, we are working to create resiliency.

The Artist Power Center, founded and fueled by Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, is a digital platform created to help artists and cultural workers navigate emergency relief and continue to build long-term careers. The platform allows artists to share knowledge, exchange resources and opportunities, advocate for what matters and create connections across sectors to strengthen the creative community across the United States. In the Artist Power Center, artists will have access to resource guides by artistic discipline, staffed phone support, webinars, and a regularly updated platform for funds, loans and grants that continue to launch and expire. 

This is the next step to link momentary relief to ongoing recovery, moving through the urgency of immediate support towards long term health for artists and culture workers. Our long term goal is to serve as a home for the community to organize knowledge, share resources, and create connections that make our networks stronger.

With a gift to YBCA you become a partner in this effort – 50% of your support will go towards relief funds distributed through Artists Now, and 50% to building and staffing the Artists Power Center.
