San Francisco to give artists $1,000 a month in no-strings-attached cash

More than a hundred California artists will be guaranteed $1,000 a month in no-strings-attached cash, the latest in a series of universal basic income pilot programs being rolled out across the state, according to a report.

Starting sometime in May, 130 local artists in San Francisco — “whose artistic practice is rooted in a historically marginalized community” — will begin receiving the money, San Francisco Mayor London Breed announced Thursday. The payments are scheduled to last for six months in total, according to The San Francisco Chronicle.
