Oakland, CA

Mission

Oakland’s Pro Arts has been fostering some of the most ambitious, wide-ranging arts programs in the region since 1974. Embedded in the Oakland community, the organization has contributed greatly to the infrastructure of a thriving artist community, providing 20,000+ artists over the years with the opportunity to experiment and connect with new audiences. We collaborate with artists, cultural organizers, activists and art commoners on the co-creation of critical discourse and deep reflections of the world we live in, through the traditional format of exhibitions, site-specific projects and presentations, and related event series (such as discussions, music series, conferences, screenings, talks, research-based projects, short-term residencies, published work, etc.)
