We spoke with Nicole Maxali, a multigenerational San Franciscan writer, producer, filmmaker and Program Director for Balay Kreative. Balay Kreative Studios is a 3,600 sq ft pop-up art studio, streaming hub & maker space in the SOMA Pilipinas Cultural District of San Francisco. It houses an artist-in-residency program, multiple flexible studio spaces, a maker lab with laser cutters, a CNC machine, and woodshop, plus an innovative streaming hub for content creators viewable from Mission Street.

Transmission Studio is a series of intimate conversations with the independent artists and community-based organizations living and working within the vibrant, complicated and ever-evolving ecosystem of San Francisco arts and culture. It aspires to inform, inspire and more importantly spark meaningful and critical dialogue on the state of the artists who remain committed to this city in spite of unprecedented social, economic and political challenges.
