On Saturday, October 22nd from Noon to 7:00 p.m., Imprint.City in partnership with Mission Bit and the Mural Music & Arts Project will launch the first annual BayviewLIVE Festival. BayviewLIVE, a festival created to address the digital divide by leveraging resources to support tech education for neighborhood youth will welcome Grammy Award nominated artist, Jidenna, a large scale mural lead by artist Cameron Moberg and youth artists from the Mural Music & Arts Project and a robust tech experience area provided by Airb&b.

"San Francisco is the international hub of the tech community, yet our residents of color experience tremendous barriers to meaningfully participate. At Mission Bit, we've been solving the tech divide by lending laptops to youth of color that don't have them at home and offering free coding education that will support them with being able to compete for jobs or start their own businesses, says a native to the Bayview-Hunters Point and Mission Bit CEO, Stevon Cook.

BayviewLIVE, a S.T.E.A.M festival, was developed to highlight the beauty of the performing and visual arts, reflecting the cultural landscape of the neighborhood while also bringing revenue to local businesses. The festival, additionally seeks to motivate young people of color to stay with S.T.E.A.M education training by showcasing their final projects during a vibrant, fun-filled arts festival.

"What we hope to achieve by featuring student tech projects and youth artists at the BayviewLIVE festival and including high profile visual and performing artists, is providing the kind of "cool factor" needed to have a lasting impact on the minds of youth participants, encouraging them to continue their journey within the tech and arts space," explains Imprint.City executive director, Tyra Fennell.
