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.
How Can We Support You?
At this time, our space is not open to the public. However, we can be a host site for curbside pick-up or distribution, or a gathering site for small group meetings and volunteers. Once we reopen, our space can accommodate larger gatherings, events, workshops, and more. If you have an idea for a project, or in need of space, please reach out!
