1842 Program Officer, Community Investments
San Francisco Arts Commission
MISSION The San Francisco Arts Commission is the City agency that champions the arts as essential to daily life by investing in a vibrant arts community, enlivening the urban environment and shaping innovative cultural policy.
RACIAL EQUITY STATEMENT The San Francisco Arts Commission is committed to creating a city where all artists and cultural workers have the freedom, resources and platform to share their stories, art and culture and where race does not predetermine one’s success in life. We also acknowledge that we occupy traditional and unceded Ohlone land. Fueled by these beliefs, we commit to addressing the systemic inequities within our agency, the City and County of San Francisco and the broader arts and culture sector. This work requires that we focus on race as we confront inequities of the past, reveal inequities of the present and develop effective strategies to move all of us towards an equitable future.
Under direction from the Senior Program Officer the Program Officer will support the Community Investments (CI) team to administer over $8 million in annual grant investments, develop community engagement activities, and increase technical assistance and professional development workshops for San Francisco artists, arts organizations, and historically marginalized communities.

The Cultural Services Allocation Plan for the Arts Impact Endowment outlines the funding allocations for the years 2019-2024, which will address needs in the arts and culture sector field. Over the course of three years, the Program Officer will support the implementation of the Arts Education grantmaking portfolio by engaging in research, conducting focus groups, developing and refining guidelines, providing technical assistance and community outreach, and facilitating panel reviews.
