SOMArts leverages the power of art as a tool for social change through multi-disciplinary events and exhibitions. Equipping artists with the space, mentorship and support they need to shift perspectives and innovate solutions, SOMArts fosters access to arts and culture for collective liberation and self-determination.
The SOMArts Curatorial Residency program is a unique opportunity for emerging artists to execute their big vision for SOMArts’ Main Gallery space. The support provided by the Curatorial Residency enables artists to continue their professional development, form new creative partnerships, and engage community members through innovative public programs.
In addition to their creative programs, SOMArts’ Fiscal Sponsorship Program provides administrative and fundraising support to 10–15 artist-led projects.
The SOMArts Rental Program offers below-market rental space and production assistance to over 100 non-profits annually, hosting their exhibitions, performances, and events in their unique post-industrial space.
