On my most recent trip back to North Beach, I was flooded with an overwhelming sense of community. Feeling vibrant and alive from walking the neighborhood hills on a crisp December evening, I found myself suddenly surrounded by warmth and laughter as I stepped into the twinkling lights of Yick Wo Elementary’s garden party, a simple but lovely event celebrating their young artists.
In 2014, FOGG produced our first What’s Your Story, Bay Area? concert. This unique event pairs Bay Area residents with Bay Area songwriters to tell the residents’ stories through song. What’s Your Story, Bay Area? was one of the most successful events FOGG has ever produced, and revealed itself to be an important element in our commitment to community.
