We do this by providing space and production support for non-profit events, as well as fairs and festivals throughout the Bay Area, and offering a robust program of art exhibitions, classes, events and performances that are affordable and accessible to all.

It is an incubator for ideas that lie outside the mainstream of contemporary art funding and consumption.
