“Intersection doesn’t just provide us with the logistical support for accounting and grant management, they keep us connected with other arts organizations in our community so that we can all work together make sure the arts are valued in San Francisco and the Bay Area.”

Todd Berman

Arts Education Alliance of the Bay Area

“Through the support of Intersection, I’ve received numerous grants for my creative work and curatorial projects. These grants have also enabled me to support collaborating artists, thus spreading the support to the larger arts community. I’m grateful for Intersection in helping me make my dreams and aspirations real.”

“Arts Ed Matters has been fiscally sponsored by Intersection since 2011. We LOVE Intersection. Their fiscal sponsorship, professional support, strategic planning, and space rentals have all been instrumental in the growth and expansion of our work and outreach. We simply could not exist without Intersection!”

Michelle Holdt

Arts Ed Matters

“As an independent artist and founder I’m constantly spread thin, but Intersection gives me the tools and resources to feel supported and keep my head above water. Intersection goes above and beyond and I appreciate it every single day.”

Who we are

Intersection for the Arts is a bedrock Bay Area arts nonprofit that’s dedicated to helping artists grow. Our staff provides people with useful resources to realize creative and cultural projects. We’re a passionate team of artists helping artists.

3 ways you can support artists while we wait for the return of in-person arts & culture (and continue to do after!):

▪️SHOP. Whatever you want from Amazon could likely also be ordered from one of our local makers.
▪️SHARE. Think of an artist doing work you love. Now share their work.
▪️DONATE. If you're able, give money to support artists that have experienced a pause in revenue. Some ideas:

As freelancers and independent contractors, artists are some of the hardest hit by the current crisis, lacking the safety net that exists for many employees. Artists are also the creative forces that enrich our communities and make the Bay Area a more connected, more creative, and more enjoyable place to live our lives. Show your #support.
