In recognition of APIA Heritage Month, we’ve kick-started our fiscal year-end appeal with our Give In May Campaign to support our mission. Now more than ever, we feel more compelled to lift up our mission and commitment toward diversity, equality, and inclusion.
Help us reach our $2,500 goal! Your support will help to ensure our continued innovation and our ability to provide critical programming for East Bay API communities.
The Oakland Asian Cultural Center (OACC) was founded in 1984 by a coalition of volunteers who recognized the need for a strong artistic and cultural force in the Chinatown area. Since opening its own facility in 1996 in the heart of Oakland’s Chinatown district, the OACC has presented countless high-quality cultural programs including performances, workshops, festivals, school tours, classes, and exhibitions.
OACC strengthens relations and builds vibrant communities by fostering inter-generational and cross-cultural dialogue and understanding, community collaboration, and social impact through these three pillars of programming:
OACC envisions vibrant, healthy, and just communities where diverse Asian and Pacific Islander identities and heritage are affirmed and celebrated through cross-cultural exchange, intergenerational dialogue, and educational programming.
