Developing a network of shared interest in the future of San Francisco

June 6 @ 2:00 pm - 4:15 pm

Hosted by Problem Library which is supporting a renaissance toward beauty, goodness, and truth in education, art, and cultural infrastructure.

Since 2017, the [working] program has been transforming vacant retail spaces in San Francisco and Oakland into sites of creative use: studios, galleries, and installations. By building relationships with property owners the program is able to provide artists with free space to imagine and create public facing activations. Through these relationships the program has helped actualize visions for the future of retail footprints. This approach comes from the programs belief that vacancy is an opportunity to critically rethink what public spaces do for people and work toward a San Francisco that is overflowing with energy and life.

The programs latest collaboration has given purpose to a vacant storefront turning it into an atelier and showroom for the sculptor Lynette Nicole Betancur. Over the past six months Lynette has reimagined the empty space into a platform for collaboration with other designers & artists, a venue for the sale of her sculptures, and a site of beauty for neighbors. Going forward, [working] is continuing to learn and adapt how it can support educational and cultural goals, and is seeking builders, developers, and planners looking to invest in large-scale, thriving environments designed for people.

We invite you to join us at Lynette’s atelier for an open house and to learn more about the history of [working], the programs future ambitions, and how you can help us work toward a positive and healthy future for San Francisco.
