The Presidio is a platform where all communities can enjoy arts and cultural experiences.
The Partnership for the Presidio co-curates events with community leaders and community-based organizations, working in collaboration with the Presidio Activator Council and a wide range of community leaders and arts organizations.
Events and activations incorporate art, culture, food, healing, wellness, and music, and reflect the vibrancy of the Bay Area.
