As so many other artists have to leave the Bay Area, how do you make it work in order to stay?

Despite reports to the contrary, we know there’s a vibrant and thriving art scene in the Bay Area. Every month, The Hustle asks a Bay Area artist to be radically transparent about their finances, getting real about sacrifices, side gigs and successes.

Are you a Bay Area artist with a “hustle”? Have you found creative ways to stay in the region while pursuing your work? We’d love to talk to you! Fill out the survey below to contribute to our reporting and be considered for inclusion in the series.
