Supporting Local Artists

Oakland has always been a hub for artists to express their creativity. Increased cost of living in the East Bay has created insecurity in artist housing and workspaces and threatens mass artist displacement if conditions do not become more favorable. Several local non-profits have answered the call to help stabilize the arts community in Oakland.


Keeping Space - Oakland

The Community Arts Stabilization Trust (CAST) recognizes that safe, affordable space is the number one impediment to the vitality of the arts in Oakland.
