WHAT'S ON

Fall registration is open!

We have been thrilled to be back together safely with young people at Camp Destiny this summer, dancing at Dimond Park, drumming at DeFremery Park, and feeling the pure joy of creating together!

Movement arts programming will continue this fall, while keeping our community safe and healthy. We are planning for in-person outdoor classes and select small classes at the center, registration is open as of Monday, August 2 at 10 AM!

Come move with us

 

The Black (W)hole

The Destiny Arts Youth Performance Company (DAYPC) and The Elders Project will work with Marc Bamuthi Joseph, Yoram Savion, Brett Cook and a team of powerful collaborators to create a poetic documentary film to honor six young Black people who lost their lives in and around Oakland before the age of 32.
