On this edition of Your Call, we’re discussing the return of the arts to San Francisco.

This year’s San Francisco International Arts Festival runs through October 24. Events will be outdoors at Fort Mason as well as online. We'll learn more about two of this year’s featured performances, including Mix’d Ingrdnts, an all women hip-hop dance company, and CHELLE and Friends, a New Orleans style band.
