What is #SFpubliccanvas?
#SFPublicCanvas is a public discourse about the changing face of this historic area and the city at large--a virtual and real world forum where YOU can communicate your dream for the future of the Mid-Market/Tenderloin neighborhood through an artistic lens. If you are living or working in the Mid-Market/Tenderloin area, or simply concerned with its future, we want to hear your ideas.
Our team has been compiling artwork submitted by the public into a cohesive work of video projection art with original animation. During #SFPublicCanvas' performance event, the projection will be displayed as an environment for BANDALOOP’s vertical dancers. Performances will take place June 16-19, 2016 on the exterior of the UC Hastings building on Golden Gate Ave.
How to Get Involved
Our Question for You
Other questions to consider:
Who are you?
What do "home" and "community" mean to you?
What changes do you want to see?
How can art play a role in improving the community?
How can we use technology to positively affect our communities?
What inspires you about this area and what are your dreams for its future?
How Can You Provide Your Answers?
We encourage you to be creative in whatever way possible. This can include, but is not limited to: musical score, graphic art, spoken word, paintings, short films, poetry, animation, a simple Tweet or Facebook post, or anything else that inspires you. We encourage submissions from people of all artistic skill levels--regardless of your training or background, if you are living or working in the Mid-Market/Tenderloin area, or simply concerned with its future, we want to hear your ideas.
The ultimate goal of #SFPublicCanvas is to foster a dialogue both online and in person. Therefore, we're asking participants to submit their work via social media, creating a public forum where members of the community can engage with one another, offering their reactions, ideas, and support.
All entries must be submitted by posting on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter, using the hashtag #SFPublicCanvas within the body/caption of the post.
#SFPublicCanvas is your opportunity to share your stories and collaborate on a one-of-a-kind, large-scale public art project. By submitting your answer to our question, you'll not only be taking part in a creative and constructive public dialogue, but you'll be credited as a collaborator on the project as well.
