The Festival honors San Francisco’s ongoing commitment to ensuring ideas gathered through a collective, community-based effort will be incorporated into the planning and design process of public space.

In spring 2015, the San Francisco Planning Department, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts and the Knight Foundation, along with other partners will work together, increasing their collective capacity to transform Market Street into a public platform showcasing up to 50 of the most exceptional ideas for improving San Francisco’s main thoroughfare, increasing the connection people have to each other and to various neighborhoods in the City.

We invite you to be a part of this exciting journey of blending community, art and innovation with redesigning public space.

The Market Street Prototyping Festival is a project of YBCA, San Francisco Planning Department and the Knight Foundation
