Review for CounterPulse, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

CounterPULSE is a fierce advocate for artists as valued cultural workers and activists as community leaders. You could flip all those words around and it would still all be true. CounterPULSE's dedicated staff, board and community are actively supporting and creating engaged cultural discourse through arts and activism in the SF Bay Area and beyond. In 2005 I was a resident artist and in 2008 CounterPULSE co-presented my work in the San Francisco International Arts Festival. CounterPULSE's staff, board, volunteers and especially ED Jessica Robinson Love did a crazy brilliant job that allowed me to focus on my artistic work in a way that is rare in our culture. Thank You is simply an understatement.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

that they are so together!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

excellent, kind, attentive, passionate!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

more deeply follow its work to support arts projects, activist projects, arts activism, and activist art! It would be amazing for CounterPULSE to have a larger/multiple spaces, and a real cafe/bar/gallery space to encourage conversation!
