Presented by YBCA, Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, PolicyLink, & ArtPlace America. A celebration of the power of the arts to advance equitable and resilient communities.

How are artists and culture-bearers working with communities and community development organizations to tackle some of the most pressing and complex issues of our time, including gentrification and displacement, racial health inequities, climate insecurity, the isolation of immigrant newcomers, and historical trauma?

This event will celebrate the launch of a new volume of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco’s Community Development Innovation Review dedicated to the theme of “Transforming Community Development through Arts and Culture.” Come explore an evolving era in community development that infuses art and cultural practice to help residents reclaim community identity, strengthen cultural resilience, and build power to shape neighborhood planning and creative placemaking—all key components of achieving equitable community development outcomes.

Join the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, PolicyLink, and ArtPlace America along with artists, community development practitioners, policymakers, financial institutions, and funders at a Yerba Buena Center for the Arts event to explore stories, ideas, and provocations from the journal.

Please join us for a reception immediately following the event from 6:30-7:30 in the YBCA Grand Lobby. Free copies of the journal will be available for all guests following the event.
