Central Market NOW is organizing an event whose aim is to connect the art and tech communities through performances and installations — it’s a message of integration.
It’s downtown in a down town of a neighborhood — one of SF’s poorest. Get down with the local artists and musicians. Free food and drinks (to make tech workers feel at home :))
Central Market NOW is a collective of organizations, businesses and individuals whose aim is to strengthen the community through art and culture by celebrating with monthly events.
Artists performing this night:
the Anata Project
Kristin Damrow and company
by A BOY AND A GIRL BAND

Central Market NOW is inspired by the success of 24 days of Central Market Arts, a public art festival that happened in 2010-2012 (centralmarketarts.org). We are beginning the process of re-envisioning the programming to make it more of an ongoing, community-driven endeavor. The project is currently being managed through SAFEhouse for the Performing Arts, (Saving Art From Extinction), a non-profit arts presenting organization, specializing in incubating new performing art through residencies, workshops, and performances.
