Advocacy Coalitions

The Symphony is a proud partner in both the San Francisco Arts Alliance 
and Bay Area Arts Together.

San Francisco Arts Alliance 

The San Francisco Arts Alliance is an alliance of arts organizations working with the San Francisco arts and culture sector. Through a united front, the San Francisco Arts Alliance seeks to lobby legislative issues which impact the arts and culture community on local, state, and federal levels in order to ensure the artistic and economic vitality essential to the equitable recovery of San Francisco’s diverse communities and the rebuilding of social cohesion and trust.

Bay Area Arts Together 

More than 100 arts and cultural organizations from throughout the 
San Francisco Bay Area have joined forces to create #BayAreaArtsTogether to build confidence for the safe and healthy return to in-person performances, exhibits, and events. Learn more here.
