The Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture

The historic Fort Mason Center was home to the SOCAP conference for the 9th year in a row. This landmark has a rich history, originating as an army fort and currently operating as a nonprofit center that hosts events rooted in arts and culture. Fort Mason is located inside the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, along the northern waterfront between Aquatic Park and the Marina Green. Alongside its large conference center, you can also find museums and restaurants. Its landmark location offers a variety of nearby hotels, where group rates were available to SOCAP16 attendees.

SOCAP16 is now over! Can’t wait until next fall to connect with like-minded changemakers? Attend a SOCAP 365 event near you to get those important conversations started now.
