Community Archival Resource Project (CARP)
EastSide Arts Alliance is establishing the Third World Community Archival Resource Project (CARP), housing a permanent collection of archival materials of audio, video, print, and digital documentation of the past and current histories of Third World communities and social movements (with a particular focus on the Bay Area from the 1960s to present).
This living and active archive will have an interactive function to service local communities through lectures, readings, forums, exhibitions, film showings, book fairs, oral history projects, public art projects, and the reproduction of primary resources to be accessible to residents, students and cultural workers.

388 9th St, Oakland, Ca
Join in on Saturday, February 3, 2024 as OACC partner with the Malonga Arts Residents Association (MARA) for the Oakland Asian Cultural Center’s second annual Lunar New Year x Black History Month Community Celebration.
OACC welcomes community back for another celebration of Asian and African-American solidarity through art, music, and dance.
Eastside Arts Alliance will be partially reinstalling our exhibition “Bandung to the Bay”, which consists of historical, archival documents connected to the International Bandung Conference and Bay Area Asian & Black activist solidarity movements like the Black Panther Party of Self-Defense.
Come through and experience this year’s incredible lineup of Black and Asian martial artists, musicians, and dance groups including Blood Moon Orchestra with Van Anh Vo and special guest Kev Choice, Diamano Coura drummers, Carla Service Dance-A-Vision Entertainment, Kenneth Pitts’ Martial Arts student, and CAL USA Lion Dancers.
In addition to a full day of performances, we are bringing back a local vendor marketplace, a children’s zone with Eastwind Books, and an exhibition on Black and Asian solidarity.
This event is part of OACC’s ongoing Open E.A.R.S. for Change initiative started in 2020 to build stronger relationships among local APIA and Black communities.
This event is funded by The City of Oakland Cultural Affairs Grant and the CA State Grant for Stop the Hate (CDSS), and sponsored by Ava Community Energy, Alameda County Behavioral Health/Health Equity Division, and Bank of the Orient.
