In partnership with the City of San Francisco, YBCA is piloting the San Francisco Creative Corps, a program that puts artists to work in service of the health and well-being of our communities. We are working alongside key performing arts organizations, San Francisco Bay Area Theater Company (SFBATCO); Dance Mission; and SF Carnaval — organizations led by and serving BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ communities —, to engage over 30 performing artists over a span of 35 days to be Community Health Ambassadors (CHAs). Concurrently, Paint the Void will be deploying visual artists to create public art works as part of the SF Creative Corps pilot program. Further support comes from the San Francisco Parks Alliance.
CHA’s will engage and creatively educate the public on COVID on safe behaviors in high-foot traffic areas throughout San Francisco, including: Shared Spaces closed streets and sidewalks; parks and plazas; transit stations; “slow streets”; and grocery store and social service lines. Through the CHAs, we hope to educate and inspire people to care for themselves and care for others throughout COVID, and to provide joy and inspiration, when and where we need it the most.
