“Art is not a mirror held up to reality but a hammer with which to shape it.”
― Bertolt Brecht

This year’s annual Blessed Unrest festival explores the question, “How can we make a positive, tangible change in our own communities while continuing to stand up for a world we believe in?”

In honor, this day long festival will include 16 local non-profits presenting about their work and how individuals can get involved, alongside powerful Bay Area artists showcasing art that boldly advocates for social justice.

Come learn how you can make a difference in your own community, while experiencing art that will leave you moved and inspired.
