FOUNDED BY ARTISTS, RAN BY ARTISTS, FOR THE ARTISTS!
San Antonio Street Art Initiative is an artist ran, independent, non-profit charity that focuses on Career Development, Business Education and Artist Rights Advocacy through Street Art Mural Programming. SASAI prides itself in being the pioneering organization of this genre in this market and being the most prolific in experience with over 70 large scale, public murals created since 2018 and with the goal of 100 by end of year 2024. SASAI hosts two career development programs: BRICK by BRICK and LOGIT: LARGEST OUTDOOR GALLERY IN TEXAS™. As its signature program, LOGIT scouts talent to participate in our annual street art block party, producing at least 10 new street art walls by local, national, and international artists. BRICK by BRICK is our signature job placement and career development program that pairs artists with one-off projects in the city of San Antonio, Texas. All our programing serves as job placement opportunities that beautify walls while advocating for free education in business and entrepreneurship so that artists have solid platform to launch or amplify their careers.
SASAI is also well known for artist rights advocacy. In addition to job placement and career development, SASAI incorporates business and legal empowerment education that strengthen artists as business owners and acts as an ally as they maneuver career growth in the professional realm. SASAI takes a lot of pride in advocating for fair-pay; no one works for free! Programming is also known for advocating on behalf of the artist as an agency in regards to their copyright, licensing and more, and does this 100% free of charge. SASAI hosts a wide variety of street art programming and takes pride in always putting the artist first.
Although SASAI has only been around for four short years, the organization has created almost 70 large scale public art contributions for the city and has advocated for over 45 artist’s careers. Programming has aided artists of all levels, from the developing high school artists who need help jump starting their resumes, to seasoned artists who are ready to sharpen their business skills. Programming has even helped senior artists learn about and incorporate technology into their repertoire so that they may continue to prosper with competitive edge in the modern technological world. SASAI takes pride in our non-profit being artist-founded and artist-ran. This lends itself to trust and understanding within our growing artist roster. Painting along side our artists in the work field, we manage to fully understand and know first hand, the troubles and obstacles artists will encounter on their journey to becoming full time, successful artists and so we are able to advocate with this experience in mind and help accelerate careers more effectively and efficiently. In turn, we also collaborate with other successful artists around the world to strengthen programming and build bridges locally, nationally and globally, opening doors for our artists around the world.
