About the Spectrum Gala & Art Auction

Please join us on Thursday, March 10th 2022 at Pier 27 in San Francisco For Access Institute's Spectrum Gala and Art Auction. 


In response to a uniquely challenging year we've chosen the event theme: "Resilience Reimagined".

What is resilience and where does it come from? Is it something you're just born with? Actually, resilience is entirely learned and developed, psychologically and emotionally. It is the capacity to withstand and overcome overwhelming and stressful life events. It's taking the blow, bouncing back, and growing from adverse experience. Individually and collectively, we have all struggled this year. We hope you will join us as we celebrate our strength and support our community to re-build our collective mental wellness.

Our Spectrum 2022 honoree is Karan Singh, Chief Clinical Operations Officer of Ginger and Headspace Health. Karan shares our vision to make mental healthcare accessible to all.

We are expecting over 300 community members, civic leaders, artists, mental health professionals, and honored guests for a spectacular evening at Pier 27 in San Francisco. In order to ensure the comfort and safety of our guests, proof of vaccination will be required.

We are especially excited about this year's signature art auction. In response to demand, we've added an online bidding feature. Please click the "Art Auction" link below to view the amazing collection donated by our community of talented and generous artists and begin bidding on your favorite pieces. The auction will remain open through March 10th (the night of the event). Registrants will receive text updates when they've been outbid or the auction is nearing the close. And while we hope to see you all in person, note that you need not be present at the Gala to participate in the auction.

Our vital work in the community must continue. You can help us today by purchasing an event sponsorship. Sponsors will receive additional benefits, including invitations to special events this fall and winter. Please see our sponsorship page for details or contact Suzanne Romaine, Director of Development to learn more. Suzanne@accessinst.org. 415.861.5449 x 304.
