Community Partnerships

OMCA believes that partnership is at the heart of rich and diverse programming, exhibitions, and successful civic engagement.  Partnership with local organizations and individuals is key to creating a more thriving and revitalized community. The Museum has had over 150 collaborators in the past decade and looks forward to expanding this effort.

OMCA is creating the basis of a local arts network by developing sustained partnerships with Oakland arts and wellness organizations located in nearby neighborhoods.
