Announcing the YBCA 10

 
In April 2021, we announced the YBCA 10, a cohort of artists the organization would work with in deep relationships over the course of a year, to allow their creative practice to lead us towards a more equitable future.

Over the past nine months, the artists that make up the 10—dancers, photographers, wordsmiths, architects, technologists, farmers, and multidisciplinary practitioners—have been working with each other and in community to imagine and design creative prototypes that impact community health and well-being, by addressing racial justice and climate equity.

While these issues are undeniably urgent, creative practice also needs time. This is an entirely new way of working for us as an organization *and* for these powerful artists, all happening at a time when deep care is required more than ever. After months of listening, movement workshops, and community conversations, it is now time to open up their process to you—our community.
