World Arts West (WAW) continues its transformative equity journey! By listening to the artists we serve, we have expanded our programming to include these four pillars:
- Performances & Events
- Artist Service Programs
- Visibility & Advocacy
- Archiving & Documentation
During the next four weeks we will share a bit about each program.
This season, support our mission to build an organization for cultural artists throughout California and the United States by donating today!
Donate $100 or more and receive access to the 2021 SFEDF Film through January 2024. Donate $500 or more and we will mail you a special selection of full-color WAW SFEDF program books.
Thank you for your support this giving season!
1. Performances & Events:
This year we partnered with other institutions to offer performance opportunities to artists throughout the year, including BayArea Dance week, workshops in schools, and our annual festival.
World Arts West Dance Festival 2023 was held at the Presidio to great acclaim! For the second year in a row we brought diverse performances to the beautiful Presidio Tunnel tops park, including a guest appearance by renowned Afro-bloco Ilê Aiyê! We continue to explore the best presenting options and locations to serve our diverse community’s needs in a fiscally responsible way.
