SAN FRANCISCO – An open house recently introduced the San Francisco Filipino Cultural Center (SFFCC) to the community.
It aims to “preserve, engage and promote the Filipino community by creating a space for Filipino arts and culture and the facilitation of exhibits, performances, special events, and community-oriented programs and services,” according to its website.
The SFFCC includes gallery space, a flexible and intimate staging area with retractable seating to allow for various uses, a multipurpose space that can be presented in a café setting, along with a gift shop and professional offices and conference center.
Located at 814 Mission Street, off the corner of Fourth Street and Mission Street, the SFFCC is within walking distance of the SF Museum of Modern Art, the Contemporary Jewish Museum, the Museum of the African Diaspora, the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts and the upcoming Mexican Museum, placing it within a nexus of cultural events and activities in San Francisco.
