The 2017 National Performance Network / Visual Artists Network’s Annual Conference will take place in San Francisco, December 14-17.
At this year’s convening, we look forward to deepening our connections to the local artist community by focusing our Live & On Stage performances on work by local artists and companies, making off-site visits to art spaces and studios in San Francisco and the East Bay, and exploring the Bay Area’s vibrancy, challenges, and resilience through the lens of art and activism.
In addition, we’ve included more opportunities for local and national artists to share their work, for NPN/VAN Partners to exchange ideas and projects with each other, and for colleagues, funders, presenters, and artists to develop relationships, strategies, and inspiration together.
We are honored to recognize this year our NPN/VAN Partner hosts around the Bay – Youth Speaks (San Francisco), La Peña (Berkeley), and MACLA (San Jose); our Live & On Stage host — Yerba Buena Center for the Arts; and dozens of Bay Area artists, arts leaders, activists, and community organizers on our Local Host Committee. All are welcome!
