The Oakland Asian Cultural Center (OACC) is the only pan-Asian arts and cultural center in the East Bay, welcoming over 25,000 guests each year. We aim to build a stronger, more vibrant community through robust arts, cultural, and social justice programming to connect different generations, cultures, and identities. Your ticket purchase goes towards ensuring OACC’s continued innovation and their staff’s ability to provide critical online programming for East Bay API communities. Since the COVID-19 outbreak, there has been a noted rise in reports of racism, violence, and discrimination against APIA communities throughout the country. Now more than ever, OACC’s mission, commitment, and dedication towards the APIA community of artists, culture, and social justice is most important. We have initiated several new projects including the “Open E.A.R.S. for Change” anti-racism series, a performing arts series featuring four accomplished local API artists, and building virtual educational resources to remotely stand-in for our suspended school tours program. We are newly imagining exhibitions to be virtually accessible and exploring remote-friendly presentation formats to elevate and support the visual arts while our physical space remains closed.
