Bayview Hunters Point Center for Arts and Technology (BAYCAT) is a nationally recognized leader in media arts-based youth development, with a unique business model. Deeply rooted in a low-income neighborhood in San Francisco, BAYCAT provides women and people of color between the ages of 11 and 25 with the technical training and hands-on experience needed to become a thriving member of the workforce within the digital media industry. BAYCAT’s Academy students create their own digital media content including films, music videos, and music. Through BAYCAT Studio, students provide other nonprofits in the Bay Area (many of them Hewlett grantees) with affordable digital media services. As a service provider, social enterprise and incubator for young media artists, BAYCAT occupies a unique space in the arts ecosystem in the Bay Area. This first-time grant to BAYCAT will help build its board and internal staff infrastructure to meet growing demand for its programs.
