MOVING 4 PEACE
Connection, Community, and Creativity, a virtual block party celebrating the accomplishments of our youth! Originally envisioned as a placekeeping festival at the Coliseum BART station, this collaboratively produced end-of-year showcase will stream on Zoom, featuring performances from Destiny Arts Center, East Oakland partners and residents, a DJ set, and offerings from local businesses and restaurants. We are proud to co-host this event with Black Cultural Zone, and the Healthy Havenscourt Collaborative convened by the East Bay Asian Local Development Corporation (EBALDC). Please let us know your coming and learn more here.
The Black (W)hole
The Destiny Arts Youth Performance Company (DAYPC) and The Elders Project will work with commissioned artist Marc Bamuthi Joseph to create works of performance and public ritual honoring six young people who lost their lives in and around Oakland before the age of 32.
In accordance with Governor Newsom’s state wide shelter-in-place order, and with the needs of our youth, families, staff, and teaching artists in mind, we have suspended ALL Destiny Arts Center programming through at least Sunday, May 31st.
