Please help build this list of Bay Area Art & Activism. We are collectively developing community standards for "notability" and want to encourage participants to contribute by heart, from memory. It is best to be able to support contributions with external citations when possible. If an external citation is not available, we would like to treat contributions as oral history.

As a content guideline, we ask that contributors consider the educational potential of their contribution. More notes on content development and further guidelines are here: Contents
