About

Every year, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts releases the YBCA 100 list, recognizing 100 people, organizations and movements that are changing the world. This November 3rd, join YBCA for the fourth annual YBCA 100 Summit, a full day of conversations and performances that challenge your perspective and further the conversations on critical issues of today. Learn from, engage with and be inspired by the YBCA 100 honorees as they explore the urgent questions that drive their work. 

Writer and filmmaker Rafael Casal’s cinematic depiction of race relations in Blindspotting, Kat Gordon’s fight for female leadership in advertising, and Nnedi Okorafor’s exploration of African stories in science fiction demonstrate that representation in visual culture has significantly influenced the struggle for socioeconomic, racial, and political equity. Don’t miss this opportunity to join Casal, Okorafor, and Gordon as they present ideas and conversations that will catalyze a pop-up town hall with you at the center of the discussion.
