Come out and show some love for the youngest and brightest up-and-coming artists and performers at the Second Annual San Francisco Youth Arts Summit. Youth leaders from prominent San Francisco advocacy groups have joined forces to showcase young artists' works which spans all realms of artistic expression.

The event is being organized by the Out of Site Youth Arts Center, a nonprofit that provides free visual and performing arts programs and paid internships for public high school students in the city.

The summit features a full day itinerary of fun, interactive, and unique art-related events, including: poetry, theater, printmaking, and video workshops with WritersCorps, SF Mime Troupe, Chrysalis Studio and TILT. You can even create your own art, such as prints to trade through Out of Site's bartering bank and ATM (Art That Matters) machine or your own stop-motion video with the Mobile Animation Studio led by the Children's Creativity Museum's C.I.T.Y. Teen Program. Spontaneous performances and film screenings will be happening throughout the day, and the day culminates with a performance competition, open to all high school students for the chance to perform on the main stage and win cash prizes.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
