Neighborhood Arts Services



SOMArts’ Neighborhood Arts Services Program (formerly Technical Services) offers wheelchair-accessible lifts, staging, catwalks, bleacher seating, PA systems and consultation for San Francisco’s many street fairs and festivals ranging from small neighborhood film screenings to San Francisco Pride to the Chinatown New Year Parade. The program has a rich history and has been working with most arts and culture festivals since their grassroots beginnings.
