San Francisco

Area arts and media institution that serves thousands of people each year. If
you are collaborative, have a start-up spirit and an education background, and
believe in power of stories to make social change, BAVC is looking for you!

ABOUT BAVC (Bay Area Video Coalition)

BAVC is a 38-year-old media arts center that brings together new and seasoned
media makers to learn new-to-them technologies and tell stories that spark
social change. In all of BAVC's work there is a belief that shared learning
and teaching can be a catalyst for people to make change in their own lives
and in their communities. Central to this work is the simple idea that people
can express themselves through art in a way that is otherwise impossible-- in
a way that is engaging, exciting, and provocative.

BAVC is one of the last media centers of its kind, and thrives because of its
ability to evolve, shift, and grow with changing technology while remaining
