The Yerba Buena Community Benefit District is seeking help to tell the story of the Yerba Buena neighborhood.
As San Francisco emerges from the pandemic and continues to find new ways to identify itself, so too is the Yerba Buena neighborhood. Because we’re the hub of museums with a strong backbone of Filipino heritage, centered around the bustling core of the Yerba Buena Gardens and the Moscone Convention Center, imagination and culture are our guiding lights. We’re seeking bold new ideas to create a story to radiate all we have to offer.
