For Community Members

COMMUNITY HALL is an initiative at Oxy Arts that offers open, flexible programmatic space, free of charge, to artists, community members and local projects. 

As we continue to push ourselves to understand how art and art spaces can function in reciprocal relationship to community, we are committed to expanding COMMUNITY HALL with an open call to ask—what space do you need, and how can we support you? 

We are interested in prioritizing projects that move margins to the center: projects led by Black, Indigenous, and POC artists and organizers, projects that serve our immediate community in Highland Park, and projects that actively seek to redistribute power and resources. 

Since our opening in May 2019, our black box performance space has been utilized for a variety of community uses—pop-up exhibitions for local LAUSD schools, meeting space for local non-profits, workshop space, rehearsal space, and more. 

At this time, our space is open at low capacity. We can be a host site for group meetings, rehearsals, events, workshops, for up to 20 people. All events must be masked, and no food or drink are not allowed during events. If you have an idea for a project, or in need of space, please reach out!
