Please support EastSide Arts Alliance and our work to provide

a home for liberation movement building and a space where we lift up

the work of artists whose work challenges systems and helps us all

imagine a new and better future. 

Your donation will help us to continue to advocate for cultural

infrastructure – community cultural centers and programmed cultural

plazas. Spaces such as ours provide opportunity to know and interact

with other real live people and a place to stay connected, build power

and affect change.

EastSide is a voice for the power of culture to transform consciousness.

Be a part of making that happen.

EastSide Arts Alliance uses arts and culture as a way to build community power and self-determination. We have been serving our neighborhood for over 20 years. We now have a third generation coming to our cultural center. We are dedicated to building deep connections between and among working class & low-income communities of color, communities whose histories, stories and cultures are actively erased from mainstream narratives. Through year-round programming at our cultural center and other public spaces in East Oakland, EastSide provides an example of how progressive artwork and the growing traditions of cultural offerings offers a creative framework for community solidarity and inclusivity. 

We believe that art can be healing and transformative when the intention is clear. The Project Sarai Mural and Beloved: An Insistence are a part of an ongoing commitment by artists, spiritual warriors, activists and abolitionists working together to end the culture of misogyny, child abuse, sexual violence and rape in our communities; and repair our collective humanity.
