Overview
Community Arts Stabilization Trust (CAST) was founded in 2012 by the Kenneth Rainin Foundation, in partnership with Northern California Community Loan Fund (now known as Community Vision Capital & Consulting). Its mission is to create stable physical spaces for arts and cultural organizations at risk of displacement, and in doing so mitigate the effects of gentrification caused by urban development. CAST also provides significant capacity building and technical assistance to arts tenants. Since its founding, CAST has secured 39,000 square feet, at four locations in San Francisco, for arts and culture organizations, with another 124,000 square feet in the development pipeline in San Francisco and Oakland.
