Be a PROFESSIONAL. Be at EMERGENCE!


<<First Name>>... Next Monday, June 10th, Emerging Arts Professionals San Francisco Bay Area presents Emergence 2019: Peeling Back Professionalism. This year, we pull back the complex layers of professionalism—capitalism, equity, respect, commitment, control, creativity—and imagine a new and better version for all of us.

EMERGENCE 2019... This is where you want to be next Monday!


What makes a person a professional? When is the term “professional” used as a weapon vs. a demarcation of respect, commitment, and value for your work and colleagues? What really is professional in an intersectional, creative field?

Join us for a day of mental and physical deconstruction of professionalism, and work towards a better definition, at Emergence 2019: Peeling Back Professionalism — presented by EAP in partnership with SOMarts Cultural Center.

- BREAKOUTS -

- ALL DAY -

Join workshops and roundtables on institutional support (or lack of) of professional development, the glory and the agony of code-switching, and the productive act of being unprofessional; work collectively to build an enlightened Professionalism Manifesto, a living archive, and a vision of a better arts future!
Give your mind some space as you collect and share resources and readings in the Library. Interact with installations and our Art Respondent. For all you caregivers, a Family Room will be available for hanging out, playing with kiddos, breast-feeding, and other family needs, so you can participate as your full self!

IMPROVEMENT OF THE ARTS INDUSTRY.
THROUGH EMPOWERMENT OF THE ARTS WORKER.

EAP is a network of Bay Area emergent arts leaders and workers who are driven to improve the sector together. By empowering the individual arts worker with personal and professional development, and through the research and development of new models of transaction and interaction in the field, our network works to shift the industry.
Emerging Arts Professionals/SFBA is a network focused on the empowerment, leadership, and growth of next generation arts and culture workers in the San Francisco Bay Area through knowledge sharing, learning opportunities, and partnerships. 

By supporting today’s emerging models and mindsets, we hope to generate a path for individuals’ meaningful and sustainable work and to stimulate a vibrant, integrated, and evolving arts and culture sector.
EAP/SFBA is a member of Intersection for the Arts. Intersection for the Arts is a bedrock Bay Area arts nonprofit that provides people working in arts and culture with fiscal sponsorship and resources to grow. Visit www.theintersection.org.
