Are you a creative individual with a passion for building a more hopeful and equitable future? YBCA is interested in working with changemakers who live in the San Francisco Bay Area. This is a place for makers, thinkers, and provocateurs to collaborate and work in partnership with YBCA. This is not just an opportunity for artists, but rather for all creative, socially inclined individuals.

YBCA is now taking applications for our three 2017–2018 Fellow cohorts. Each cohort will grapple with one of the following questions and will require event and meeting attendance throughout the year.

  • How do we find and empower TRUTH?
    (Jun 2017–Jun 2018, monthly commitment)
  • Where is our PUBLIC IMAGINATION?
    (Jun 2017–Jun 2018, monthly commitment)
  • Can we make CREATIVE DISSENT matter?
    (3x a week, Jun 2017–Aug 2017)

2017–2018 applications are now open through May 1.
