Give


Give to support insurrection, community and connection through the arts!

Last year, SOMArts provided a platform for over 1,700 artists to share their work with over 31,000 community members who participated in SOMArts’ events such as Dia de los Muertos, Night Light and The News. In addition, more than 260,000 Bay Area residents enjoyed outdoor events that relied on staging, wheelchair-accessible lifts, movie screens and bleachers provided by SOMArts technical services.

Your support makes this possible.

At SOMArts, we rely on the generosity of community members like you who help us keep politically-engaged and experimental art accessible to diverse Bay Area communities. In return, we thank our donors with unique experiences to meet and learn more about the work and artists you’re supporting when you give to SOMArts.

“It is difficult to find a venue to really experiment with artistic ideas. I very much appreciate SOMArts’ openness to doing this.  It is a valuable  resource to artists who want to do things outside the increasingly corporate, business arts model and engage in critique. Yeah SOMArts!” - Johanna Poethig, Commons Curatorial Resideny recipient for Glamoregeddon: The Spectacle
