Giving Voice To The Artistic Community

We've always tried to make sure underrepresented voices get heard.

Plinth was born from a community of artistic entrepreneurs with fresh ideas and important causes.  We're continuing our tradition by helping the crowdfunding campaign for the Ma'ARTES Festival. Heres two past projects we helped to produce.

World Class Musical Acts

As part of the Poleng Lounge, we helped to produce shows that gave helped expose the community to emerging international musical acts like The RZA, Aloe Blacc and Dam Funk.

Low Rider art show

We also helped to produce a low rider art show in the Summit SF's Peek Gallery on Valencia St. in the Mission. The show helped bring a Chicano art form back to the rapidly changing Mission District.
