Jobs & Internships

YBCA is a multidisciplinary arts center that anchors the dynamic Yerba Buena Cultural District in downtown San Francisco. YBCA works continuously to break new ground with its programs in visual art, performance and film/video, and to connect our programs to a broad cross section of the community, not just the art elite. Our facilities are comprised of two landmark buildings with 12,000 square feet of gallery space, a 94-seat Screening Room, flexible performance/meeting space and a 750-seat Theater. Institutionally, we are committed to innovation in our practices, exceptional diversity in our range of work and the engagement of audiences with art that speaks to the ideas and issues of the contemporary world. The YBCA curatorial team works collaboratively to develop organization-wide thematics, around which performances, exhibitions, films and public programs are curated and created.
