The Community Arts Stabilization Trust (CAST) was founded in 2013 on the belief that the arts drive strong, vibrant, diverse communities. Together with its partners, CAST strives to stabilize rent and secure space for arts organizations in the SF Bay Area, the hottest real estate market in the nation. CAST is considered essential if San Francisco is to remain a vibrant and thriving home for arts entities that cultivate creativity, community, economic development and neighborhood stability. With over $38 million in funding to date, CAST is regarded as a major rising star and is quickly emerging as the “go to” organization for real estate development and management in the arts sector.
CAST facilitates equitable urban development by creating affordable workspaces for arts and cultural organizations. CAST does so by acquiring properties, building the capacity of cultural organizations to lease and own property, leasing to sustain below-market rents for those not poised to buy, and developing complementary initiatives to achieve its mission.
CAST believes that when arts entities have stable homes, shielded from a volatile real estate market, artists and arts groups are free to be the trailblazers and culture bearers that help make San Francisco a global hub of innovation and creativity.
Current projects include: the renovation and management of a multi-tenant arts center at 447 Minna street in the heart of the 5M project in San Francisco, management of three cultural facilities at 1007 Market Street, 80 Turk Street, and 2301 San Jose Avenue in San Francisco, Culture Compass, a city-wide mapping project of cultural spaces, and Keeping Space Oakland, a community building, technical and financial assistance initiative designed to mitigate nonprofit displacement in the arts sector.
