Raising our rates for 2019
We have raised our rates in 2019 for the first time since 2016 and now with our annual raise in rent, we thought it the right time to do this. Rates for non-profit organization meetings and workshops will be $40 per hour, the exhibit rate will be $2,800 and event rates will be $60 per hour for daytime or evenings. We have tried to keep our rates as low as we possibly could, but with rising utility rates and costs of supplies, we need to make sure we can keep the Center open for years to come.
Calling all Volunteers!
The SFVACC has started a new concept for sitting the Center. We will be putting together a team of professional docents to watch over the Center during our exhibits. These docents will be trained in everything they need to know about running the Center and being a welcoming representative behind the reception desk. Organizations can also have their members keep our professional docents company, if they so wish. We will need to fill forty 3-hour shifts during each of our 2019 4-week exhibits. So think about joining our team and immerse yourself in all that creative energy at the Center! Click here for the application.
