Since 1992 CAMP has had many partners that we have worked closely with and who have played a significant role in our development and successes. CAMP greatly appreciates the opportunity to collaborate with others who we can share with, learn from, and/or support. Thank you!
The following are community partners that CAMP has collaborated closely with over the course of our history. Apologies if we’ve left anyone out – if we have, please let us know and we’re happy to add you to our list of gratitude:
CAMP’s deepest gratitude goes out to Clarion Alley and its residents/neighbors who have shown their support through the permission we’ve obtained from nearly every property owner on the alley to paint on their buildings. Along with this go the various practical helps from the residents such as access to water and telephone and electricity, occasional gifts of food and drink to muralists, and donations of paining and prep supplies. Alley residents and nearby neighbors have also donated time as photographers and videographers. During the first dotcom boom neighbors showed their support by collecting and saving segments of murals destroyed during the demolition of buildings on the alley slated for luxury condo development – and giving these fragments of our history to CAMP. THANK YOU CLARION ALLEY NEIGHBORS & RESIDENTS!
VOLUNTEERS / CONTRIBUTORS
Since CAMP’s inception in 1992 thousands of volunteers / contributors, including CAMP’s organizers, artists, musicians, residents, neighbors, individuals, community organizations, and small businesses have donated tens of thousands of hours and donated significant goods and services. THANK YOU VOLUNTEERS / CONTRIBUTORS!
Community Thrift was the first neighbor on Clarion Alley to give CAMP spaces to paint our first six murals in 1992. Community Thrift has continued to work with CAMP since our inception, supporting the project’s curation of the walls on its building, allowing CAMP to store our ladders and some materials in its space, donating tables for the project to use during events, and helping out with the project’s occasional need for electricity and water. Additionally, over the years many of Community Thrift’s employees have been CAMP organizers and/or artists. Likewise, CAMP artist and organizer Jet Martinez painted Community Thrift’s facade. THANK YOU COMMUNITY THRIFT!
INDEPENDENT ARTS & MEDIA
Independent Arts & Media has been CAMP’s fiscal sponsor since 2015. THANK YOU INDEPENDENT ARTS & MEDIA!
ATA (Artists Television Access)
Since its inception CAMP and ATA have been solid community allies with one another in their visions and programming to help support social and economic justice for the Bay Area and beyond. CAMP has also collaborated with ATA on various projects throughout its history. Most notably, ATA has curated video projections for CAMP’s annual Block Party, beginning in 1998. Additionally, many of CAMP’s artists and organizers have painted murals in ATA and/or worked with them over the years.
THANK YOU ATA!
SAN FRANCISCO POSTER SYNDICATE
The San Francisco Poster Syndicate grew out of the crisis around higher education– student debt and the abuse of adjunct faculty. We create and screenprint original political images, continuing the rich history of posters as a form of political messaging. We print the posters live at political actions, exhibitions and on the street, and give away the work in order to target a variety of current social/economic justice issues. The Poster syndicate is here to bring art and design to many different people’s movements in hopes that their message can be heard and seen to a greater audience. THANK YOU SF POSTER SYNDICATE!

The Asian Art Museum (AAM) is CAMP’s institutional partner for the international exchange & residency. Allison Wyckoff, Associate Director of Public and Community Programs at the Asian Art Museum traveled to Yogyakarta with her family as part of the residency to assist with the project, meet and connect with members of the arts community in Yogya, and represent the Asian Art Museum.
