About Us

Founded in 2012, Community Arts Stabilization Trust facilitates equitable urban development by creating affordable workspaces for artists and arts and cultural organizations in San Francisco and the Bay Area. 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.

We believe 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 the Bay Area a global hub of innovation and creativity.
