San Francisco Goes Independent!

This is San Francisco, home of the disenfranchised, the rebel, the artistic warrior. This is San Francisco, home of the progessive thinker, revolutionary, voice of the voiceless. What better place to celebrate independent thinking, art and culture at it's best? Even our local government agrees that now is the time to come together to explore, create, celebrate and enjoy the amazing myriad of talent in our fair city! Mayor Gavin Newsom signed a proclamation in November 2007, officially declaring September 8 - 12 as "Independent Artists Week" in San Francisco! Celebrate Independent Artists Week as Infin8 Sync and friends host various informative and entertaining events throughout the week. Artists Week (IAW) is a weeklong celebration of artists ranging from Musicians and Filmmakers to Fine Artists and Fashion Designers. Everybody will have the opportunity to collaborate, be enlightened and celebrate their industries! The schedule consists of the following activities: “Green Day” - Live Artists construct a mural in an art-deprived setting with drinks, live music and poetry BYOA- Get Graphic - Independent magazines, fashion designers and graphic artists “show their stuff” in a mash up celebration for graphic artists in these industries .
