The Jacobs Center is working with the community to revitalize Southeastern San Diego’s Diamond Neighborhood. Part of this work includes creating an arts and culture district supported by Jacobs Presents. Jacobs Presents brings arts and culture to the area making it easy for residents to experience theater, music, and learn about other cultures in their own community. It is also an opportunity for the rest of San Diego to experience the Diamond Neighborhoods and celebrate renowned performing arts and the local diversity of the area in a state-of-the art venue only minutes from downtown.
