Eight bridges connect the San Francisco Bay, so it is an apt name for a gallery platform that brings the Bay Area art world together.

Our mission is to maintain a vibrant gallery scene, despite restrictions on travel, celebrations and other larger gatherings. We want to support our artists by informing and entertaining curators, collectors and critics with potent online exhibitions of their work.

On the first Thursday of every month, we will launch 8 shows of artists relevant to the Bay Area. They may be working in this place, long considered an epicenter of change, or deeply engaged in the conversations the Bay Area holds dear, whether it’s related to technology, the environment, social justice or sexual identity, to name a few. In addition, each month will highlight the crucial work of a Bay Area non-profit arts organization as its beneficiary, with an initial donation led by Phillips.

Chinese Culture Center of San Francisco in collaboration with API Equality Northern California – Preserving and Uplifting Trans and Queer API Stories: Zine Workshop

May 12 @ 5:00 pm PDT - 6:00 pm PDT

Join API Equality Northern California’s (APIENC) Dragon Fruit Project for an interactive zine making workshop where you’ll learn more about zine making as a transformative tool and how APIENC has used zines to preserve and uplift trans and queer API stories from our Dragon Fruit Oral History Project.

Hosted by the Chinese Culture Center in collaboration with APIENC, “Preserving and Uplifting Trans and Queer API Stories: An Interactive Zine-Making Workshop” is an auxiliary program of “WOMEN我們: From Her to Here” exhibition, which brings together local and universal experiences of queer agency and belonging.

Cultural strategy is essential to transgender and queer API people’s survival and liberation. Telling our own stories fights back against the invisibilization of our experiences and provides an opportunity to ground in lineage and imagine our futures.

No experience needed! All you’ll need is some paper, something to write with, and any other art materials you want to bring–no need for anything fancy!
