Who We Are

Supporting creative collaboration through community.

Welcome to Baana, a space where people gather, create, and celebrate. We are thrilled to announce the opening of our new creative studio and event space in San Francisco's Lower Nob Hill. This is only the beginning, as Baana will be a vehicle for many creative collaborations and gatherings to come!


Christine Trac, Abacus Row

Christine is a jewelry designer with an academic foundation that focused on the implications of environmental conservation on local communities in SW China. From an early age, Christine learned to find balance in differences, to identify where things intersect, and how to create with limited resources. While a departure from her current work, Christine’s background in ethnography and conservation science influences how she sees the details in everyday routine and practices. She is inspired by both the natural ways in which things come together and the innovative approaches used to produce unexpected connections. Abacus Row is an on-going exploration of material and community intersections.
