Announcing #SFPublicCanvas
Upcoming workshops + FREE open rehearsal
KQED art film feature



BANDALOOP, Madrone Studios, and Illuminate the Arts invite you to add your voice and art to the conversation!

You are invited to take part in a large-scale public art performance called #SFPublicCanvas. A community conversation comprised of crowd-sourced projected images collected through social media, #SFPublicCanvas will be activated by a live BANDALOOP vertical dance performance in the Mid-Market corridor in San Francisco.

Marking your content with the hashtag #SFPublicCanvas is all you need to do to include your art, words and video to this conversation. Show or tell us what inspires and challenges you about the Mid-Market area of San Francisco, what change you want to see there, or simply tell us who you are and why you are in the Mid-Market district.

Take a photo or video on Instagram, or write your thoughts, poetry, free associations or prose on Twitter and Facebook with the hashtag #SFPublicCanvas - that's it! We will find it and blend it into our creation.

A many-to-many conversation, #SFPublicCanvas will highlight your dreams, challenges and desires for this vibrant and challenging heart of San Francisco through dynamic large scale public performance.

Be a part of it!Responses can be posted on InstagramTwitterFacebook. Use #sfpubliccanvas.

Filmmaker Lisa Landers released this piece recently on KQED featuring Founder & Artistic Director Amelia Rudolph and dancer Roel Seeber dancing on the cliffs of Marin, and it's already one of the local PBS affiliate's most viewed art films of all time! We hope you enjoy watching it as much as we loved being a part of it.
