State of the Arts Summit 2023: Rebuilding Our Communities

Join Arts for a Better Bay Area for their annual art summit as they focus on rebuilding our arts and culture communities. We’ll discuss current challenges in the wake of the COVID pandemic and explore how to build collective impact to strengthen our communities and sector.


Artists, administrators, government officials, and representatives from various networks, coalitions, collectives, and advocacy groups will convene to learn from one another to strengthen the arts sector.

Our theme, “Rebuilding Our Communities,” will explore collective ways the arts community can develop and bridge supportive connections as we emerge from the pandemic. Our goal is to strengthen our networks and build support allowing us to mobilize around critical issues, important policies, and other matters.
