Artists Activating Community
CounterPulse’s Block Fest animates and celebrates the unit block of Turk Street (between Mason Street and Taylor Street) with free arts activities, cultural offerings, community information, and discussion for local residents, workers, and visitors. From protest sign & button workshops to ofrenda-making, Block Fest celebrates the creativity and resiliency of the Tenderloin.
Block Fest is supported by BLICK Art Materials. www.dickblick.com
