  • Village Artist Corner StreetBeats, A Cultural Exploration

    Workshops & Activities, For Families, and part of Art/Lit Living Innovation Zone: Program Activations

    May 06


    11 AM—3 PM

    Corner of Fulton and Larkin

    This spring, Today's Future Sound will bring the power of hip-hop to the Civic Center. Find out more about the artistry of beat-making and join a dialogue around the intersection of music, dance, connection and community. Facilitated by Today’s Future Sound executive director Dr. Elliot Gann and his team of instructors and teaching artists, this activation aims to promote creative compassion by bringing people together to learn about hip-hop's history and culture and its impact on 20th and 21st-century music. Activities will include rapping, mixing songs and beats, sampling from other genres and cultures, integrating instruments and live audio performances shaped by your input. The last activation on May 6, which coincides with Sunday Streets, will be the CD release party for the Civic Center collaborations of the previous months.     

    About the Art/Lit LIZ
    As part of a city initiative to revive underutilized public spaces with art, performance and community activities, San Francisco has created several Living Innovation Zones (LIZ). We are honored to share a LIZ with the San Francisco Public Library: the Art/Lit LIZ, on the corner of Fulton and Larkin streets. The Art/Lit LIZ is a platform for installations, performances, art-making and other events and includes a 30-foot-long mural wall that presents a rotating display of site-specific artworks.


The Village Artist Corner is funded through the generosity of The Family of Tania Vonelleese Seymour and San Francisco Grants for the Arts. Founding program support was made possible by Housing-Related Parks Program from the State of California, facilitated by San Francisco Recreation and Parks Department; The Hearst Foundations; California Arts Council; and The NFL Foundation and 50 Fund, the legacy fund of the Super Bowl 50 Host Committee. Support for community engagement at the Asian Art Museum is provided by The Walter & Elise Haas Fund.
