The Artist Power Convenings were a community investment strategy to build the capacity of artists and artist-led organizations in service of their communities.

With the Artist Power Convenings, YBCA wanted to support artists getting together, virtually or in-person, to imagine, create, and lift up each other across our region. As the first initiative of its kind at YBCA, the program continued to evolve in order to better serve Bay Area artists and artist-led organizations

YBCA finished administering funds for the Artists Power Covenings in Fall of 2022. All awarded grantees have been invited to participate in a convening at YBCA in March 2023. A list of the awardees can be found below.
