Carnaval San Francisco, with roots in the Mission District since 1978, has never had a brick-and-mortar space to call its own. Since 2009, we have been evicted from five different locations due to the rapid rate of gentrification and the disappearance of cultural institutions and artists in San Francisco. After more than 44 years of existence, we will finally have a lifetime permanent casa to call home in the Mission District.
Carnaval San Francisco's Cultural Arts Healing Center, located on 681 Florida Street, will help bring long-term sustainability for Carnaval artists, musicians, and dancers which will continue to preserve our cultural roots and traditions for the next seven generations. The permanent home will provide a dance and music rehearsal space, community gallery, a recording studio, art maker space and a performance space.
It will cost $3.2 million to build out the space and install equipment, $2.7 million of which have already been raised– we just need $500,000 left to raise!
Cultura y Arte Nativa De Las Americas (CANA) is a 501c3 nonprofit organization. For over four decades, we have preserved and celebrated the many heritages through culturally and linguistically-relevant dance, music, art, and by creating spaces for community learning, school-based education, advocacy and human services. Carnaval San Francisco and the Mission Food Hub are projects of CANA.
