A member of Intersection for the Arts
Founded in response to the Ghost Ship Warehouse Fire as a way to honor the victims of the fire, Vital Arts works to ensure the survival of safe, affordable housing, work, and performance spaces for artists and musicians.
The Bay Area’s vibrant ecosystem of affordable dwellings and performance venues is increasingly threatened with eviction, due to pressure from building inspectors, private developers, and others. Vital Arts strives to legalize existing spaces and develop creative and affordable alternatives, so the Bay Area can continue to be an extraordinary place of artistic and creative ferment.
Vital Arts is endorsed by over twenty Ghost Ship family members, and raises 65% of its annual operating costs from individual donors.
