#ARTISPOWER: Oakland First Fridays 1st Annual Fundraiser
Live Art Exhibition & Silent Auction
Oakland, CA - Join Oakland First Fridays Street Festival for #ArtIsPower, our very first annual fundraiser to support local artists on Thursday evening, October 19th, 2017 from 5pm to 9:00pm at Humanist Hall - 390 27th Street, Oakland CA 94612.
We need your support to keep going strong! Join us for a wonderful event that will include: Interactive Art, Live Art Exhibition and Silent Auction, Drinks and Food from local culinary artisans, Celebrity guests performances AND MORE!
With your purchase of a ticket to #ArtIsPower, you will contribute to sustaining the longevity of Oakland First Fridays, and allow us to create more opportunities to support local interactive artists, performers, and musicians that fill the streets with creativity, passion, and love each and every month.
Founded in 2006, Oakland First Fridays has grown to become one of the largest celebrations of art and culture in the world. Through our community-driven event, we are able to provide a platform for artists to showcase and sell their work to thousands of people each month, stimulating growth for local business and Oakland’s community of Do-It-Yourself creatives.
Oakland First Fridays is an almost entirely volunteer run organization, and the event relies almost exclusively on individual donations to survive. It takes a massive collaborative effort to keep the event thriving each month, and with your help we can continue to sustain Oakland First Fridays as a safe, free and inclusive space for all to enjoy.
Can't make it to the main event? Come through for the After Party from 9:30pm-1:30am upstairs at the Legionnare Saloon with Sake Garden resident DJ's JoogMac and DasBoots. 21+ only, $5 - $10 sliding scale cover at the door.
