Fay Darmawi, Founder, SF Urban Film Fest, recognized as social practice artist
Becoming a YBCA Fellow in recognition of founding a film festival focused on storytelling as civic engagement was not something I had foreseen. Now that it's happened, it makes sense as the art and activist worlds are right now coming together looking for practical solutions. On Sat. Nov 5, I had the honor of attending the YBCA100, a convening of social practice artists from around the world. I found a new community and hope to share it with you via the SF Urban Film Fest.
