SFIAF Mission


SFIAF celebrates the arts by bringing together a global community of artists and audiences. The organization presents innovative projects that are focused on increasing human awareness and understanding. SFIAF’s curatorial priorities include developing collaborative projects led by Bay Area artists working with their national and international peers and presenting world-class international artists who often do not have US representation and whose work is rarely (or has never previously been) seen in the United States.


From 2003-17 SFIAF and over 100 presenting partners have coordinated, presented and/or produced performances by over 330 arts ensembles from the Bay Area and more than 50 countries, as well as conducting numerous educational and outreach activities.


SFIAF is dedicated to coordinating the shared resources of multiple organizations to reach mutually beneficial goals. The organization’s core values are based on principals of cultural and economic equity. In addition to working with larger institutions, we place a high priority on the participation of culturally diverse and smaller entities. Activating and supporting relationships between such organizations and artists is a key component of SFIAF.
