Help us keep our doors open!

Spaces like ours are an essential incubator and launchpad for emerging artists, and provide much-needed meeting spaces for artists, art lovers, and the larger community. BUT the prices of the Bay Area are posing a continuous problem to the sustenance of our mission. In order to keep our doors open, we depend on your generosity.

As a self-financed small art collective, we are rethinking our capacity and ability to survive financially during the pandemic.

A simple way to help is to sponsor us monthly on Patreon. All proceeds will go to keeping the collective alive. This includes paying for monthly studio/warehouse rent as many of us have lost our sources of income during COVID. Additional funds can also help us continue our artist programming as we move through the pandemic.
