WHAT'S ON

Summer registration is open!

We’re so excited to safely re-integrate with our community this summer through outdoor, in-person summer classes for youth ages 5–18. This year, summer sessions will be held at Dimond and De Fremery parks in Oakland and include a wide array of art forms like Hip Hop, Capoeira, Body Percussion, Fashion, Latin Dance, and more!

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.
