Many different cultures celebrate the solstice–– it’s a time to remember that we, like the sun, contain the power to nurture and sustain, and that we have a responsibility to burn as brightly as we can. Come out & have some fun and help SOMArts Cultural Center, a long-standing San Francisco cultural beacon, shine on into our 36th year of promoting cultural connectivity & multifaceted participation in the arts.
New to SOMArts? This is why we need your support…
SOMArts cultivates access to the arts within the Bay Area by collaborating with community-focused artists and organizations. Together, we engage the power of the arts to provoke just and fair inclusion, cultural respect, and civic participation.
SOMArts plays a vital role in the arts ecosystem by helping activate the arts citywide. 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.
