Success Story
I recall my relationship with Bay Area Video Coalition beginning in 1982 when I produced Art In The Park. BAVC was one of the exhibiting artists groups who enhanced the event with their presence. My awareness of BAVC's presence and impact in our communities has remained since that time.

Success Story
In June 2014, I took a huge leap and left a job I hated to wholeheartedly pursue my goal of being an illustrator and graphic designer. It was the scariest and best thing I've ever done.

Success Story
I moved from Sacramento to connect with multiple businesses to develop greater opportunities. I heard about BAVC when I started attending SF City College. BAVC gave me a great opportunity by connecting to multiple resources which I had no clue even existed.

Success Story
In 2010 I worked with BAVC’s Preservation team to convert some old half inch reel-to-reel videotapes to digital files. The tapes were video documentation of my 1975 performance art work Splitting the Axis at the Berkeley Art Museum, University of California, Berkeley.

Success Story
Last fall, my older sister, Reyna, was starting her second year with BAVC. She thought that I would enjoy filmmaking. Reyna encouraged me to apply. I happily agreed thinking that it would be a good way for me to make friends and express myself in a new way. BAVC helped me do all of these things and more.

Success Story
I remember going to BAVC’s first building, when they were on Potrero Hill, and the first classes they offered. This was when video was expanding from a recording medium to a storytelling medium and documentary format all its own.
