Intersection for the Arts

Established in 1965, Intersection is a pioneering arts and community development organization that brings people together across boundaries to instigate break-through change. Intersection’s programs emphasize relationships, collaboration, and process. Intersection works with hundreds of artists through residencies, commissions, fellowships, fiscal sponsorship and incubation, performances, exhibitions, workshops and public art projects. Annually, Intersection works with more than 50 community partners across sector and field.

Intersection is a lead collaborator on the 5M Project, a 4-acre multi-phase, mixed-use development project located in downtown San Francisco. With The 5M Project, Intersection is helping to prototype the next generation of urban development that embraces diversity of thought, life experience, and culture as essential to positive economic and social change in our neighborhoods. 5MPlaceWorks, a collaboration led by Intersection for the Arts, brings the 5M Project and Central Market neighbors together with artists, makers, entrepreneurs, social change agents, and technology innovators to collaboratively develop a new kind of place that unlocks resources, connection, and creativity across silos and disciplines.
