Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (YBCA) is the Bay Area’s creative home for civic action. YBCA believes that culture precedes change and it is the responsibility of arts organizations to spur and support social movement.
The YBCA Fellows program brings together creative citizens from across the Bay Area — artists and everyday people alike — to engage in a yearlong process of inquiry, dialogue, and project generation. Each Fellowship cohort will explore and respond to a question that emerged from our annual YBCA 100 summit. Together, they’ll use art and culture to inspire community transformation and drive new possibilities into the public imagination. Fellows’ projects will ultimately be presented at YBCA’s bi-annual Public Square, an event that provides a platform to share new information, surface big questions, and enact change.
Interested in being a future YBCA Fellow? YBCA will select 30 individuals to join its next Fellowship cohort. Selected participants will respond to the question “What does EQUITY look like?” Application open April 16–May 31, 2016.
