“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

“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.

Our community neighbors and friends Root Division are currently presenting a beautiful exhibition "We Are Home: Visions & Voices of the Tenderloin Community Quilt". The exhibition is facilitated and co-curated by Mattie Loyce of Delivering Innovation in Supportive Housing (DISH) and Mary Hogue of Mission Praxis, featuring art by over 70 artists and participants across the Tenderloin neighborhood.This exhibition presents the work of the Tenderloin Community Quilt project. Beginning in the Fall of 2022, the project engaged the extended Tenderloin through collective quilt-making workshops to express the significance and meaning of ‘home’. The exhibition is the culmination of one year of work, featuring a film of interviews with resident artists, archival print content from the SFPL Tenderloin Archive, and the large-scale collaborative quilts created through its workshops.Check out this show now through November 29, 2023. ...
