Solidarity Grid

An International Solidarity Raiser for the Local Arts

International community in Bay Area throws its support behind artists and art institutions

Who? > Solidarity Grid is an international solidarity raiser initiated and led by The Grid, a global network based in San Francisco connecting the worlds of technology and art. Through this network, local art institutions, tech companies, artists, technologists, and governments work together to bring art into technology and technology into art. The Grid was founded by EUNIC Silicon Valley, a European platform of cultural institutions based in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Why? > We live in times of uncertainty about what the future will bring. But the future doesn’t just happen. We create it. Try to imagine a future without art and creativity. How would such a world look like? Wouldn’t this be like imagining a world without a future?

The rich independent cultural spaces, festivals, and art institutions in the Bay Area are all struggling from the crisis. Artists and artistic communities need our support now. Our diverse international community in the San Francisco Bay Area has long benefitted from the vibrant cultural life here. Today, our unique cultural ecosystem defined by innovation, creativity, and ingenuity is under threat! Let’s join forces and show solidarity now by supporting local artists and art institutions! Get behind the Solidarity Grid!

How? > If you want to support Solidarity Grid, please raise awareness of this initiative by sharing among your friends, partners, and contacts. Coordinated by EUNIC Silicon Valley, the San Francisco Consular Corps, and the French American Cultural Society, 100 % of the proceeds raised will be distributed among local cultural institutions in the art and technology world, including Gray Area, MUTEK.SF, Codame, and Zero1.
